ANGORA- A 75-year-old Britt woman was taken to Cook Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after a car in which she was a passenger was struck from behind at the Hwy 53/Hwy 1 intersection on Saturday.
Luke Jonathon Sandberg, 23, of Brooklyn Park, was driving a 2010 Toyota Corolla westbound on Hwy 1 at about 8 p.m. on Saturday when he entered the intersection and didn’t see a northbound 2006 Hyundai Elantra, according to a Minnesota State Patrol accident report. The Elantra struck the Corolla from behind, sending it spinning into the east ditch.
Sandberg and a passenger in the Corolla, Vicki Collette Sandberg, 54, of Brooklyn Park, were not injured, but a second passenger, Katheryn Jean Gilson, 75, of Britt, was injured and taken by Cook Ambulance to Cook Hospital. Her injuries were described as non-life-threatening.
The driver of the Elantra, Joan Marie Musech, 56, of Cook, also was not injured.
All four individuals were wearing seatbelts. The report also noted that alcohol was involved with both drivers, but did not indicate if any citations were issued.
St. Louis County Sheriff’s Officers assisted with the call.
