A two-vehicle accident southeast of Erskine (MN) sent one driver to a hospital.

It happened Wednesday morning shortly after 10:00.

The Minnesota State Patrol says a Chevy van was eastbound on the right shoulder of Highway 2 near Oak Lake, when it tried to make a U-turn, and caused a right-angle crash with a trailing semi in the eastbound lane.

Troopers say the 67-year-old Hillsboro man driving the van was transported to a Fosston hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The semi driver was not injured.
