A Joice, Iowa, woman was injured Wednesday in a broadside rollover crash in Albert Lea.

Charlene J. Hanson, 68, was transported by Gold Cross Ambulance to Mayo Clinic Health System in Albert Lea with a non life-threatening injury.

A 1997 Toyota Avalon driven by Susan K. Vietz, 56, of Clarks Grove was traveling west on Freeborn County Road 101 and a 2010 Ford Escape driven by Hanson was traveling south on Highway 13, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. A vehicle reportedly obscured Vietz’s vision and the two vehicles collided.
