Driver seriously injured in Tuesday accident
An accident during the morning of Tuesday, Dec. 18, has left a 35-year-old Isanti woman with serious injuries.
According to Isanti County Chief Deputy Bill Guenther, Sabrina Kay Hasser, 35, was driving west on Co. Rd. 5 passing a couple of cars when she hit a patch of ice trying to cut back into the westbound lane.
Hasser collided with Haley Ann Gammon, 20, of rural Isanti, driving in the eastbound lane carrying three children.
The collision occurred at the intersection of Co. Rd. 5 and Lily St. (Co. Rd. 52) in Bradford Township.
Deputy Guenther said Hasser was not wearing her seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. She was transported by Allina Ambulance to Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids.
Gammon, who was wearing her seatbelt, was transported by private party to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Deputy Guenther said all three children were wearing their seatbelts and were not injured.
“We urge all drivers to slow down this time of year, increase your distance between vehicles and pay attention to your surroundings,” Deputy Guenther said. “And please remember to wear your seatbelt.”
Deputy Guenther said traffic was detoured for a while, and law enforcement cleared the scene around noon. Responding to the scene were the Isanti County Sheriff’s Department, Isanti Fire, Isanti County Safety & Rescue, Allina Ambulance and the Minnesota State Patrol.
