RENVILLE - A 53-year-old man was airlifted Wednesday after a crash at 840th Avenue and 240th Street, just north of Renville.

Joey Ross, of Renville, was transported to North Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to a news release from the Renville County Sheriff’s Office.

Ross was in stable condition Wednesday evening, the Sheriff’s Office said.

Around 3:20 p.m., Duane Baalson, 62, of Sacred Heart, had been driving a 1996 Chevrolet Suburban west on 840th Avenue.

Failing to yield at a yield sign, he crashed into a 1993 Chevrolet Astro Van, driven by Ross, that was being towed by a 1994 Chevrolet Astro Van, driven by Quentin Keehl, 57, of Renville, with passenger Dean Nepsund, 53, of Renville.
