Both Drivers Injured In Crash

A two-vehicle collision Saturday evening in Palo Alto County injured two people, one seriously.

Authorities say 26-year-old Abbey Berven of Graettinger was southbound on highway four and had stopped for a stop sign when she pulled into the path of a pickup driven by 68-year-old James Miller of Spirit Lake.

Berven had to be extricated from her car and was taken by ambulance to Palo Alto County Hospital with incapacitating injuries. She was then transferred by air to another medical facility. Miller received minor injuries and was taken by ambulance to the Palo Alto County Hospital.

The vehicle driven by Berven was totaled… there was five-thousand dollars damage to Miller’s vehicle.
