A serious two vehicle accident on County Road 61 south of Moose Lake brought three people to the hospital Sunday afternoon.

An 87 year old female, Phoebe Benson of Barnum, Minn., turned left on County Road 61 in front of a two passenger vehicle. A 31 year old male, Randy Habisch of Sturgeon Lake, Minn., was the driver of the other vehicle with a 20 year old female, Eryn Zebrasky of Bruno, Minn., as the passenger.
