Two people were brought to the hospital after a crash with a farm semi-tractor south of Warren, Minn., a press release from the Minnesota State Patrol said.

A Volvo farm semi-tractor was driving north on U.S. Highway 75 and slowing to turn right onto 170th Street Northwest in Brislet Township in Polk County Thursday just after 10 p.m., the release said. A Chevy Silverado crashed into the back of the vehicle as it slowed to turn, the release said.

The pickup driver, 29-year-old Eric Thomas Lavanger, and the driver of the farm semi-tractor 67-year-old Joann Fay Sorenson, both of Warren, were brought to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, the report said. They were both wearing their seat belts and alcohol was not involved.
