Two people were injured in an accident near Waubun on Saturday.

The Minnesota State Patrol reports that Nora Sherri Littlewolf, age 54, of Detroit Lakes, and her passenger, Ashley Marie Listul, age 28, Detroit Lakes, were taken to the Mahnomen hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries as a result of the crash.

Two other parties involved in the accident, Wyatt Steven Pugh, age 21, of South Saint Paul, and his passenger, Louisa Lorraine Jastram Pugh, age 21, of Sioux Falls, S.D., were unharmed.

According to the patrol, Littlewolf was driving a Ford Taurus northbound on Highway 59, at Highway 113, when the vehicle was struck by a Chevrolet Impala driven by Pugh. The Impala was eastbound on Highway 113 and failed to yield the right of way, pulling out onto Highway 59 and striking the Taurus in the left rear corner. This caused the Taurus to spin out and run into a stop sign and traffic hazard light.

All parties were wearing seatbelts, and alcohol was not a factor in the crash, the patrol reports. The accident happened at 12:13 p.m. on a dry road.
