A three-vehicle accident injured one driver at 1:33 p.m. Wednesday near the entrance to the Beltrami County Highway Department at 2493 Adams Ave. N.W. in Bemidji.


Bemidji Ambulance transported the driver of a black Ford car to North Country Regional Hospital, said State Trooper Bruce VonHodlt. The driver's name was not available Wednesday evening. No other injuries were reported.

In his squad vehicle, Deputy Greg Haugen of the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office was making a left turn off Adams Avenue Northwest into the highway department entrance and the black car traveled around the squad vehicle on the shoulder, striking the squad vehicle, VonHodlt said.

VonHodlt said the black car then lost control and collided with a southbound Chevrolet Silverado. Driving the pickup was Tom Rietveld of Bemidji.

All parties involved in the accident were wearing seat belts, the State Patrol reported.
