A Milaca woman suffered life-threatening injuries in a two-vehicle crash involving a semitrailer Saturday, Sept. 11, in Borgholm Township.

The Minnesota State Patrol reported 26-year-old Michael Read Greeley, of Milaca, was driving a 2012 International semitrailer east on Highway 23 and stopped to turn left onto northbound 90th Avenue at 4 p.m. Saturday, just west of Milaca. A 2005 Pontiac Montana, driven by 49-year-old Cheryl Lynn Propson, rear-ended the semitrailer when it stopped to turn.

Propson was transported to North Memorial Health Hospital in Robbinsdale for life-threatening injuries, while her passenger, 60-year-old Gregg Michael Propson of Onamia, was transported to Fairview Hospital in Princeton for non-life-threatening injuries.

Cheryl Propson was wearing a seat belt, according to the state patrol, but it is unknown if Gregg Propson had his seat belt on.

Greeley was not injured.


The Mille Lacs County Sheriff’s Office, North Memorial Health Ambulance, Milaca Fire Department and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources assisted at the scene.
