Five injured in Saturday crash

Five were injured in a crash at the Anne Street-Highway 71 intersection Saturday evening.

The state patrol says 50-year-old Robert Raincloud of Ponemah was northbound on 71 in a Pontiac Bonneville when he turned onto Anne Street and was struck by a southbound Ford Mustang, driven by 54-year-old Delbert Kingbird of Redby.

All involved were treated either at Sanford Bemidji or on the scene for non-life-threatening injuries, including Raincloud’s two juvenile passengers and Kingbird’s adult passenger.

All were wearing their seat belts and alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.

The Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, Bemidji Police Department, Bemidji Fire Department, and Sanford EMS assisted at the scene.
