A couple from Tracy was injured when they attempted to pass farm equipment in Lyon County on Saturday afternoon.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, at about 4 p.m. on May 1, a 2012 Challenger farm tractor driven by Cory Lynn Staufacker, age 36, of Balaton, was southbound on Highway 59. Just north of 120th Street, Staufacker attempted to make a left turn onto a field approach. As he turned, a southbound 2014 Chevrolet Impala driven by Shirley Ann Myher, age 77, of Tracy, tried passing on the left, and collided with the tractor.
Shirley Ann Myher was transported to the Tracy hospital, along with her passenger, Gerald John Myher, age 81, both with believed non-life threatening injuries.
Assisting on the scene were the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, Minnesota DNR, Garvin First Responders, and Tracy Ambulance.
