3 injured in two-vehicle crash in Detroit Lakes

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. - Three people were injured when a car rear-ended a minivan as the van tried to turn off Highway 59 into the Shady Hollow Flea Market on Sunday, Aug. 27, the Minnesota State Patrol reported.

According to the report:

Pamela Sue Linder, 62, Fergus Falls, was driving her 2007 Dodge Caravan north on Highway 59 about 12:39 p.m., when she attempted to turn left into the flea market.

Linder's Caravan was then rear-ended by a 2009 Pontiac G6 driven by Kody Robert Anderson, 22, of Bagley.

Linder and a passenger in the van, James Alan Linder, 64, Fergus Falls, both suffered non-life-threatening injuries, as did Anderson.

All three people were taken to Essentia Health St. Mary's in Detroit Lakes for treatment, the patrol reported.

The Becker County Sheriff's Office and Detroit Lakes police also responded to the accident scene.

The airbag deployed in the car, but not in the minivan, the report said. Anderson was not wearing a seatbelt, though both van occupants were seatbelted, the report said.
