A rural Danube man was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash just north of Olivia Thursday morning. The crash occurred at just before 8am at the intersection of 830th Avenue and 330th Street. 33-year-old Travis Zuidema was driving a 1995 Dodge pickup southbound when his vehicle collided with a westbound 1994 GMC Suburban driven by 18-year-old Martin Minkel of Olivia. Both vehicles then entered the ditch and struck a utility pole, and Zuidema was ejected from his vehicle. He was flown from the scene to North Memorial in Robbinsdale with critical injuries.  Minkel was transported by ambulance to the Renville County Hospital, where he was treated and released. Both vehicles were totaled.
