Sanborn woman injured in Martin County collision with semi Wednesday

(Clarification: the Sanborn referred to in this article is actually Sanborn, *Iowa*, not Minnesota.) A Sanborn woman was injured Wednesday when the vehicle she was riding in was in a Martin County collision with a semi-truck.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, on Dec. 21, Elijah David Groeneweg, age 17, was driving a 2017 Chevrolet pickup eastbound on I-90. Near mile marker 104, at about 12:56 p.m., the pickup was rear-ended on the icy highway by a Peterbilt semitruck being driven by Joshua Roger Dunn, age 30, of Alta Vista, Iowa.

Groeneweg and Dunn were uninjured in the accident, but Groeneweg’s passenger, Michelle Marguerite Minton, age 42, of Sanborn, was transported to the hospital in Fairmont with non-life threatening injuries.

The Martin County Sheriff’s Office, Truman Fire Department and Ambulance, and Fairmont Police Department assisted at the scene.
