Details have been released in one of Friday evening's crashes in which two women were seriously injured and a third was not hurt.

According to the official incident report by the Minnesota State Highway Patrol, Louise V. Hanson, 56, was traveling eastbound on Highway 34 near milepost 41 and 320th Avenue at approximately 7 p.m. when she lost control and veered into the westbound lane. Meanwhile, Ida M. Engel, 56, and Beverly G. Lusty, 58, both of Detroit Lakes, were traveling westbound. Hanson's vehicle clipped them, sending them into the north ditch. Their vehicle rolled and they were thrown to the ground.

Road conditions were wet at the time of the crash. It is not known whether this contributed to the crash. No further information is available at this time.
