Two people suffered non-life-threatening injuries after their car hit a beet truck in rural Polk County, Minnesota.

The incident occurred shortly after 1:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 29, at the intersection of Highway 75 and Center Street.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the beet truck was southbound on Highway 75 and the 2019 Chevy Malibu was westbound on Center Street. The Malibu failed to yield the right-of-way and collided with the truck at the intersection.

The State Patrol reported that the driver of the Malibu, Jordan Anderson, and a passenger, Renee Anderson, both were injured. They were taken to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks. Both Andersons are from Michigan, North Dakota.

Dale Gunufson of Fertile, the driver of the beet truck, was not injured.
