(Spencer)-- A two-vehicle collision Tuesday at the intersection of Highway 71 and 13th Street southwest near Menards in Spencer sent one person to the hospital.    

Spencer police say it involved vehicles driven by 43-year-old Alea Klatt of Laurens and 41-year-old Anessa Thorson of Moville. Police say Klatt was westbound and had stopped at a stop sign when she pulled into the path of the southbound vehicle driven by Thorson.    

Thorson was extricated from her vehicle and was taken to Spencer Hospital for treatment of neck and shoulder pain. No other injuries were reported.    

Klatt was cited with failure to yield from a stop sign; Thorson was cited for failure to have a valid driver’s license.    

Damage to a 2009 Chevrolet driven by Klatt and to a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am driven by Thorson was estimated at $2,500 for each vehicle.    

The collision took place shortly after 3:00 p.m.
