Woman injured in Itasca County crash with semi


An Arizona woman was injured in a crash with a semitrailer Tuesday night in Itasca County.

Judith Georgene Albert, 79, of Buckeye, Arizona, was driving a 2020 Buick Enclave around 9:41 p.m. when she slowed down on state Highway 46, just south of Northome, to make a left turn, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

A Volvo semitrailer, driven by Floyd Steven Pauls, 44, attempted to pass Albert in the opposite lane when Albert struck the semitrailer in the front-right side.

Albert was taken to Grand Itasca Clinic and Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
