One injured in three-vehicle crash

One was injured in a three-vehicle crash in Hubbard County Saturday.

According to the state patrol, 49-year-old Jason Stevens of Park Rapids was westbound and attempting to cross the intersection on Highway 71 when he struck the rear of a UPS Truck, driven by 50-year-old Darin Leeseberg of Wadena.

The UPS Truck then spun around and struck the front of a Pontiac Grand Prix, driven by 30-year-old Joseph Laber of Alexandria.

The UPS truck went into the east shoulder ditch on Highway 71, and rolled twice.

Leeseberg in the UPS truck was uninjured, as was Stevens in a Chevy Silverado.

The driver of the Pontiac, Laber, was treated for non-life threatening injuries on the scene.
