The Minnesota State Patrol says a Decorah woman was involved in a two-vehicle crash in Mabel on Sunday afternoon.

54-year-old Doreen Dahl was headed south on Highway 43 shortly after noon Sunday and had stopped at the intersection with Highway 44.   Dahl did not notice a vehicle driven by 18-year-old Tristan Brainard approaching from the west.  She pulled into the intersection, striking the trailer Brainard was pulling.  The collision caused the trailer to rotate counter-clockwise, knocking over a stop sign and overhead light pole.

Dahl suffered possible injuries, but did not need an ambulance.  Tollefsrud was not injured, nor was a passenger in Dahl's vehicle.  There was a light rain falling at the time of the crash.
