Four people from around the region, including a Dent woman, were injured in a rear-end crash in Ogema Monday.

The Minnesota State Patrol reported that a Chevrolet truck waiting to turn west onto Becker County Road 18 from Highway 59 was rear-ended by a Buick van.

Two passengers in the van were transported to Essentia Health-St. Mary’s in Detroit Lakes to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries, according to the patrol:  Corinne Anne Devall, 29, of Detroit Lakes, and Erin Judith Vanden, 34, of Dent. The driver of the van, Timothy David Lee, 27, Detroit Lakes, and another passenger, Brandy Lee, 26, Detroit Lakes, were not injured.

The driver of the truck, Gary Lee Erickson, age 68, Ogema, and his passenger, 68-year-old Kathryn Lynn Erickson of Ogema, sustained non-life-threatening injuries but were not taken to a hospital.

The patrol reported that everyone involved was wearing a seat belt and alcohol was not a factor in the crash. The accident occurred at 1:29 p.m. on a dry road.
