A 57-year-old Ada, Minn., woman is in the hospital with serious injuries after a vehicle accident Sunday evening on U.S. Highway 59 in Polk County.

Maureen G. Peterson was a passenger in a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix driven by her husband, Douglas W. Peterson, 57, Ada, about 5:30 p.m. Peterson was driving south on the highway in Winger, Minn., slowed to make a left turn onto Polk County Road 1 and was rear-ended by a 2005 Chevy Equinox at a high speed, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Loretta J. Giard, 41, Mahnomen, Minn., was driving the Chevy, which continued through a parking lot and struck the Sioux Oil Co. building in Winger, Minn. The vehicle was totaled.

The Pontiac sustained severe damage in the accident, as well, according to the patrol.

Maureen Peterson was taken to Mahnomen Hospital with broken bones in her neck, according to the patrol, and Giard was taken to the same hospital and examined for possible injuries.
