A collision at U.S. Highway 2 and Polk County State Aid Highway 8 in McIntosh, Minn., shortly before 10 Monday night injured three people. One of them was ejected from his vehicle, the Minnesota State Patrol reported.

Three people were taken to an undisclosed hospital, where two were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and a third was treated and released, according to a Patrol report.

The Patrol reported that a 2007 Ford driven by James S. Johanneck, 66, of Red Lake Falls, Minn., was traveling west on U.S. 2 when a 2012 Oldsmobile Intrigue, traveling south on County 8, driven by Donald E. Degroat, 28, Moorhead, crossed divided Highway 2.

The Patrol said Degroat failed to yield the right of way. The right front of the Ford struck the left front of the Oldsmobile, the Patrol reported. Degroat was ejected through the rear window and found on the roadway, according to the report.

Degroat's injuries and those of Johanneck's passenger, Waivel L. Johanneck, 66, were non-life-threatening, the Patrol said. James Johanneck was treated and released.

The investigation into the accident is continuing.
