Two injured in Thursday afternoon crash

Two were injured in a crash on Highway 71 Thursday afternoon.

The state patrol says a southbound Ford and northbound Hyundai collided around the Highway 2 intersection in Bemidji Township around 4:20 p.m.

A 20-year-old passenger from Menahga and a 61-year-old driver from Bemidji were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Sanford Bemidji.

Bemidji Fire, Bemidji Ambulance and the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the scene.

Roads were dry at the time of the crash and alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
