Minor injury in car vs. semi accident at Highway 81, 6 interchange Wednesday
FAIRMONT - Crews responded to a car versus semi accident at the U.S. Highway 81 and U.S. Highway 6 interchange in Fillmore County early Wednesday afternoon. The incident occurred just after 12:30 p.m.
A semi apparently hit a navy blue SUV. The SUV then rolled, but landed right-side up in a ditch near a tree.
The driver of the SUV, who hasn't been identified, suffered only minor injuries. The accident occurred in the northbound on-ramp, which leads to eastbound U.S. Highway 6.
The interchange is on the western edge of Fairmont in northern Fillmore County. The exact cause of the crash is unknown, though slick roads from recent snow and freezing fog may have played a factor.
