A 58-year-old Saginaw woman was critically injured this morning in a two-vehicle crash in Industrial Township. The crash resulted in a fire that destroyed one of the vehicles.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a Toyota Camry was southbound on Minnesota Highway 33 about 7:15 a.m. when it collided with a Plymouth Voyager traveling westbound on St. Louis County Highway 7 (Industrial Road). Vehicles on Highway 7 have a stop sign at that intersection.
The Patrol reports the Camry went into the ditch, where the heat from the car ignited dry grass and caused a fire. The fire destroyed the car; the Voyager also was totaled in the crash.
The driver of the Voyager, Patricia A. Nelson. 58, of Saginaw, was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center in Duluth with critical injuries. She was not wearing a seat belt, the Patrol said.
The driver of the Camry, Lois M. Larson, 56, of Alborn, was transported to St. Luke's hospital in Duluth with non-life-threatening injuries.
The Grand Lake and Industrial Township fire departments doused the fire. The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office also responded to the scene.
