Local Man One of Two Injured in Sunday Evening Head-on Crash 

A Wright County man was one of two people injured in a two-vehicle, head-on traffic crash Sunday evening in the west metro community of Minnetrista. The State Patrol reports that around 6:30 PM, a passenger car was westbound on Highway 7 at Victoria Drive in Minnetrista when it crossed the center line, colliding head-on with an eastbound full-size van. Authorities say the driver of the passenger car that crossed over into the eastbound traffic lane was 45-year-old Brian Gilson of Montrose. Gilson sustained serious, but non-life threatening injuries, and was taken to North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale. The driver of the van, 68-year-old Thomas McDonald of Minnetonka, also sustained non-life threatening injuries, and was transported to the Fairview Southdale hospital. Officials say both drivers were buckled up properly, and alcohol was not a factor in the crash. The Carver County Sheriff's Office assisted the State Patrol at the scene.
