(Primghar)-- Minor injuries were reported Thursday in a collision in O'Brien county involving a car and a semi tanker-trailer.

The Sheriff's Office says 44-year-old Dawn Koch of Primghar was driving a 2008 Pontiac northbound on a county road and 58-year-old Eugene Vlahakis of Orland Park, Illinois was driving a 2019 Peterbilt semi northbound. Deputies say the semi was attempting to pass the car when the two collided.

Koch complained of possible injuries and was going to seek medical treatment on her own.

Deputies say the semi was pulling a tanker trailer that was partially loaded with liquid nitrogen. An inspection showed none of the material leaked from the tanker.

Damage to the car driven by Koch was estimated at $2,500; the semi sustained an estimated $10,000 in damage.
