A garbage truck was involved in an accident with another semi-trailer Thursday afternoon in the Windsor Township area of Traverse County.
A semi-trailer driven by 49 year old Kevin Allen Downey of Auroro, Colorado and a garbage truck driven by 69 year old Maynard Cyril Beaudreau of Peever, South Dakota were both northbound on Highway 27 from Browns Valley. The garbage truck missed the exit and was stopped in the lane. The semi-truck was passing the garbage truck when the garbage truck turned into the semi, causing the semi to go into the west ditch with the garbage truck stalled in the left lane.
Both Beaudreau and his passenger in the garbage truck, 23 year old Lawrence Leonard Malcolm of McLaughlin, South Dakota were taken to Sanford Medical in Fargo with minor injuries. Assisting the State Patrol was the Traverse County Sheriff’s Office.
