A 2-year-old boy was injured in a car-vs-semi crash Wednesday on U.S. 59.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a 2011 Peterbilt semi truck/trailer operated by Michael Lee Johnson, 36, of Appleton was southbound on U.S. 59, and a 2012 Buick Enclave operated by Matthew Alan Sandman, 36, of Tracy was northbound. The vehicles collided at the U.S. 59 intersection with Windstar Street in Marshall; the crash was reported at 11:43 a.m. Wednesday.
