A Peterbilt semi tractor driven by 61 year old Mark Alan Brede of Carlos was traveling north on Highway 59, seven miles south of Barrett, early Wednesday morning when a southbound Pontiac Grand Am driven by 19 year old Aiden Jon Winter of Hoffman crossed over the centerline and the vehicles struck on their driver sides. The Peterbilt then went off the road into the east ditch. The Grand Am came to rest on the shoulder, with airbag deployed.
Winter was taken to Stevens Community Medical Center in Morris with non life threatening injuries. Responding to the scene were Hoffman Fire, Hoffman Ambulance and Grant County personnel.
