Two Minnesota residents were injured during a crash on Interstate 80 this (Saturday) morning, in Cass County. The Iowa State Patrol says a semi driven by 62-year old Ross Schultz, of Denison, and a car driven by 40-year old Levelle Harris, of St. Paul, MN., were traveling westbound on I-80 just west of the exit to Highway 71, when for reasons unknown, the car approached the semi and swerved to avoid it.
The 2005 Nissan made contact with the front right side of the semi, which came in contact with the left rear corner of the car, causing the car to be disabled on the traveled portion of the road. The accident happened just before 7-a.m.
Harris, and a passenger in his car, 36-year old Brandy Richardson, also of St. Paul, suffered minor injuries during the collision. They pair, who were wearing their seat belts, were transported by Medivac Ambulance to the Cass County Memorial Hospital, in Atlantic.
