Driver seriously hurt in Highway 12 crash

KERKHOVEN -- The driver of a van involved in a two-vehicle, head-on crash around 10 a.m. Thursday east of Kerkhoven sustained serious injuries.

Evazich was not injured in the crash. The location of the crash is listed as Highway 12 near Swift County Road 39.
