Their injuries were not life-threatening, according to police.
Reports stated Larson was driving northbound on Prospect Avenue in a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am when she failed to yield to the stop sign at the road’s intersection with Main Street and pulled out into the path of a 2014 Chevy Malibu, driven by Trygstad, that was headed eastbound.
The Malibu struck the driver’s side of the Grand Am, and the Grand Am was pushed into the median.
Albert Lea firefighters extricated Larson from her vehicle using the Jaws of Life.
Multiple officers from the Albert Lea Police Department, Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office and Minnesota State Patrol responded, along with Gold Cross Ambulance.
The crash was reported at 8:51 a.m.
