A driver and two passengers were injured in a two-vehicle crash Friday evening in Underwood, according to a news release from the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office.

An 83-year-old Underwood man was driving a pickup truck south on Main Street North at 6:10 p.m. and he tried to make a left turn onto East Street North but cut in front of another pickup headed north on Main Street. The second truck, driven by a 25-year-old Dalton man, was unable to avoid the other vehicle and hit it on the front passenger side.

The 83-year-old sustained moderate injuries. Ringdahl Ambulance took him to Lake Region Hospital. He was wearing a seat belt.

Two passengers in the second truck, a 24-year-old and 3-year-old each from Fergus Falls, sustained possible injuries and were not transported by ambulance. The driver was not injured.

No citations were issued. Both vehicles were towed.
