According to a Minnesota Highway Patrol incident report, a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado stopped at 170th St. on the west side of Hwy. 64 as a 2016 Nissan Quest was northbound on Hwy. 64. The Silverado attempted to cut across Hwy. 64 and was T-boned by the Nissan.

Airbags deployed in the Nissan, but not in the Silverado, the report states. Road conditions were described as dry.

Transported to CHI St. Joseph’s Health in Park Rapids with non-life threatening injuries were the Nissan’s driver, Sara McGrath, 48, of Apple Valley, and her passengers, Alexander McGrath, 10, Matthew McGrath, 14, Daniel McGrath, 16, and Jeffrey McGrath, 51, all of Apple Valley. All were wearing seat belts, the release states.

The report identifies Jared Spenst, 23, of Akeley as the driver of the Silverado. Spenst was not injured. The release states he was not wearing a seat belt.


Also responding to the scene were personnel from the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office, the Eastern Hubbard County Fire District and North Memorial Ambulance.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
