Hoffman Family Dodges Injury On Highway 71 05 Jan 18

A local family narrowly escaped injury last night after a two-vehicle accident south of Charlotte Lake.

25-year-old Jeremiah Russell Jobe of Hoffman was driving north on Highway 71 at 6:03 p.m., when 86-year-old Alvin John Bous of Long Prairie turned left from oncoming traffic. Jobe was unable to avoid Bous, and the two collided.

Alvin, and 79-year-old Louise Murial Anderson-Bous of Long Prairie were taken to the nearby CentraCare hospital, but are expected to be fine. Jeremiah, 24-year-old Rachel Corrin Jobe of Hoffman, and three minor children weren’t hurt.
