Broken glass and car debris were strewn across the east bound lane of Highway 9 as a result of the accident 5 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of Memphis Avenue and Highway 9, just north of Polaris Industries. The crash sent a red Sedan into the south-side ditch with the driver trapped inside. Members of the Spirit Lake Fire Department were on scene to extricate the driver. She was then transported by ambulance to Lakes Regional Healthcare with unidentified injuries. Deputies with the Dickinson County Sheriff's Office diverted oncoming traffic north onto Memphis Avenue for an extended period of time Tuesday evening.
