MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police believe alcohol was a factor in crash Tuesday afternoon in St. Joseph Township that injured an Albany woman.

It happened just before 12:30 p.m. at the intersection of County Roads 3 and 75. Investigators say a Ford Focus driven by a 45-year-old Thief River Falls man slammed into the back of a Chevrolet Silverado that was stopped at a red light.

The driver and sole passenger of the Silverado, 26-year-old Ashley Prestidge, suffered minor injuries, and was taken to an area hospital.

The driver of the Ford Focus was not hurt, despite the massive front-end damage that his car sustained.

St. Joseph police are investigating.
