Nevis man unhurt in Lengby crash

William Bennett, 51, of Nevis was uninjured when his Suburban and a Lengby man's pickup collided on U.S. Hwy. 2.

We are part of The Trust Project.

A man from Nevis was involved in a two-vehicle crash Sept. 15 north of Lengby.

According to a Minnesota State Patrol incident report, the crash was reported at 11:26 a.m. at the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 2 and Polk County 4 / 393rd Ave.

Polk County Sheriff’s OFfice, Fosston Fire Department and Essentia Ambulance personnel also responded to the scene.

Investigation found that a 2013 Ford F-150 driven by Bruce Klicker, 43, of Lengby was eastbound on Hwy. 2, and a 2017 Chevrolet Suburban driven by William Bennett, 51, of Nevis was northbound on County 4 when the vehicles collided in the intersection, the report states.

Airbags deployed in both vehicles, and both drivers were wearing seat belts. Road conditions were dry, and no alcohol was involved, the report states.


Klicker was transported to Sanford Bagley Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, the report states. Bennett was not injured.

The facts of the case so far do not support Shannon Brandt’s claims that he and Cayler Ellingson argued about politics or that the teenager was calling for people to come after Brandt, North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Bryan Niewind told The Forum on Thursday.

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.
