ROYALTON -- A Wadena man was taken to the hospital after his vehicle was sideswiped on Highway 10 in Bellevue Township.

The Minnesota State Patrol says around 10:30 a.m. Friday, 34-year-old Mark Rau of Brainerd was heading south on Highway 10 near 68th Street. At the same time, 54-year-old Ali Omar Ali of Waite Park was heading south as well.

The Patrol says Rau attempted to change lanes and sideswiped Ali, causing both vehicles to go into the ditch. Ali's passenger, 24-year-old Sharif Bakari of Wadena was taken to St. Cloud Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Neither Ali or Rau were hurt, wet roads played a factor in the crash.
