Two motor vehicle crashes with injuries were reported last week in Hubbard County.

Failure to yield

According to a press release from the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office, a two-vehicle accident took place Dec. 17 on County Road 3 in Becida.

Dispatch received a report at 5:07 p.m. of a two-vehicle crash with injuries. Arriving deputies found both drivers outside their vehicles.

Investigation showed that Shaylyn Roberts, 39, of Solway was driving south on County 3 in her 2015 Subaru Forester when she attempted to turn left into the Becida bar, in front of a northbound 2011 Toyota pickup driven by Greg Judd, 52, of Bemidji. The vehicles collided, resulting in severe damage to both.

Roberts reported having chest pain due to the seatbelt. Judd was uninjured.


Roberts was cited with failure to yield the right of way.

No seatbelt

A one-vehicle rollover was reported on Dec. 19 with an occupant, who was not wearing a seatbelt, complaining of back pain.

According to the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office press release, the crash was reported at 7:12 p.m. on County Road 4 in Lake George Township.

Arriving deputies found the vehicle overturned and the driver trapped inside. The Lake George Fire Department was called to the scene and extricated the driver from the vehicle.

Investigation showed that Kristyn Mensink, 29, of Lake George was driving her 2008 Ford Fusion east on County 4 when she lost control on a curve and drove off the road. The vehicle overturned and came to rest upside-down in the ditch.

Mensink was transported by Bemidji Ambulance Service to Sanford Bemidji Medical Center for possible back injuries. She was not wearing a seatbelt.
