One injured in Highway 59 head-on crash

A woman suffered non-life threatening injuries in a Highway 59 crash just before 9 a.m. today, June 20.

A Ford Ranger, driven by Ervin Marvin Johnson, 87, of Fergus Falls, was travelling on the highway when it crossed over the center lane and collided with a Subaru Legacy, driven by Claire Ruth Beardsley, 81, of Vergas.

Beardsley was transported to St. Mary's Essentia Health, and Johnson did not suffer injuries.

Both were wearing their seatbelt during the time of the crash, which dry pavement.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
