NEAR EAST GRAND FORKS, MN (WDAZ-TV) - Two people were injured in a collision between a pickup and a semi-trailer Tuesday afternoon south of East Grand Forks.

The accident happened at the intersection of Polk County Road 9 and Minnesota Highway 220.

The semi hauling lumber was southbound on Highway 220 when it struck the rear wheel area on the driver's side of the pickup.

The pickup was heading east on County Road 9 and had just stopped at a stop sign on that road. Two passengers in the pickup were taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

"The Minnesota State Patrol is going to investigate the crash and they have a DOT unit that comes and looks at the semi and they'll inspect that," Polk County Sheriff's Deputy Ken Dionne said.

Neither vehicle rolled. There was a trailer attached to the pickup, which rolled on its right side into the ditch.
