A Franklin woman was injured in a one-vehicle crash Saturday morning.

On Oct. 24, at about 2:25 a.m., Renville County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were dispatched to the intersection of County road 16 and 670th Avenue, about four miles northwest of Fairfax, on the report of a one-vehicle crash with the driver still trapped inside.
