BOGUS BROOK TOWNSHIP – An Andover woman was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash Thursday, Aug. 31 on Highway 169 and County Road 12.
Marnell Kay Wilber, 72, sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries when she was hit broadside while crossing Highway 169, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
Wilber was crossing County Road 12, also known as 80th Street, from east to west in a 2003 Chevrolet Impala at about 10:30 a.m. on Aug. 31 when she was hit by a 1998 pick-up driven by John Richard Moser, 70, of McGrath.
