Two people were injured in a three vehicle accident over the weekend in Beltrami County.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the accident occurred when a westbound 2007 Chevy Silverado driven by Ronnie Romello Haywood, 24, of Bedford Ohio, crossed 71 Highway, in Northern Township and was struck by a GMC Sierra, causing the Chevy to spin into a 2013 Ford Pickup.

A passenger in the Haywood Chevy was taken to Sanford and treated for non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Sierra, Stephen Joseph Simon, 34, of Laporte, sustained non-life threatening injuries, though no health care facility is listed in the State Patrol report.

Haywood, the driver of the Ford, and a second passenger in Chevy suffered no apparent injury.

Officials say alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
