Traffic accident on Highway 5 North sends one to the hospital

A traffic accident, at approximately 11:00 on Highway 5 North Friday morning, has sent at least one person to the hospital. Although specific details cannot be published until a police report is complete, evidence at the scene suggests two motor vehicles were involved.

One vehicle was in the parking lot of Pioneer Propane, located at 630 Highway 5 North, and the other was in the middle turn lane just north and in front of the store. Neither vehicles appeared to have been totaled, however emergency personnel were loading a female onto a stretcher to be transported to Baxter Regional Medical Center.

Weather conditions were cloudy and the road was clear at the time of the accident.
