One hospitalized after tractor-pickup collision near Hubbard

The female driver of a farm tractor was taken by ambulance to a Park Rapids hospital shortly after a collision with a pickup south of Hubbard this afternoon.

"I swerved into the ditch, he said. "She fell off the tractor and I went to help her and the tractor pushed my truck down farther into the ditch," he said.

Ruberto declined medical attention at the scene.

He said the tractor driver "was pretty bruised up."

She was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph's Area Health Services.
