Trooper Avoids Injury
By Natalie Bervig
WILLMAR - A state trooper escaped injury Monday when another vehicle ran into his squad car.
The trooper had been assisting a driver who had gone into the ditch on Highway 71 south of Willmar when another car slipped on the ice and crashed into the other car, causing it to hit the squad car as well.
The trooper was not in his car and was not hurt. The 37-year-old Willmar woman who ran into the cars was treated for minor injuries.
I didn't realize until just now that the stories are identical because they were both Associated press stories. The only difference is that the Star Tribune mentions the time of the accident. http://www.startribune.com/462/story/1026522.html The Pioneer Press does not. http://www.twincities.com/mld/twincities/16788417.htm
