(Spencer)-- Minor injuries were reported Tuesday in a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Highway 71 and Clay County Road B14 near Fostoria.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office says 20-year-old Dakota Peters of Dickens was eastbound on 280th Street when he pulled into the path of a vehicle driven by 33-year-old Amber Nelson of Spirit Lake who was northbound on Highway 71.

Nelson declined treatment on the scene; Peters and two passengers in his vehicle were transported to Spencer Hospital where they were treated and released.

Damage to a Kia driven by Nelson was estimated at $5,000; a 2001 Dodge Dakota pickup Peters was driving sustained an estimated $4,500 to $6,000 in damage.

Peters was cited for failure to yield the right-of-way.
