power lines

Power had to be restored in parts of Renville County following an accident on Thursday night north of Renville. The Renville County Sheriff’s Office reported that a Dodge Ram driven by 69-year-old Gerald Erstad of Worthington and a Grain Truck driven by 40-year-old Nathan Sunvold of Renville were both northbound on County Road 6. Erstad attempted to pass Sunvold as Sunvold was attempting to take a left-hand turn onto 880th Avenue. The two vehicles collided and entered the drainage ditch. Neither man was injured but a power box was damaged resulting in power outages to residents in the area of the crash. Renville-Sibley Co-Op Power was contacted to ensure the scene was safe, and to restore power to the area. The Renville County Sheriff’s Office was assisted on scene by the Renville Police Department, Minnesota State Patrol, Renville Ambulance Service, and Renville-Sibley Co-Op Power.
