AITKIN — A Brainerd woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash on snow-covered roads Thursday, April 20, in Aitkin County.
The Minnesota State Patrol reported the crash just before 2 p.m. Thursday. Alan Duane Bohlman, a 55-year-old Isanti man, was reportedly driving a 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 north on Highway 169 east of Aitkin in Spencer Township, when he lost control and collided with a southbound Toyota Camry.
The driver of the Camry, 26-year-old Brainerd woman Kelsey Winter Rousch, was transported to Riverwood Healthcare Center in Aitkin for non-life-threatening injuries. Her passenger, 3-year-old Jaxsen Chase Martin, was not injured, nor was Bohlman.

All parties were wearing seat belts, according to the state patrol.

The Aitkin Police Department, Aitkin County Sheriff’s Office and Aitkin Fire Department assisted at the scene.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
