Weather played a role in causing an injury crash Thursday evening on the Iron Range. The Minnesota State Patrol says 18-year-old Hailey Worth of Maple Grove was heading west on Highway 169 when she lost control of her vehicle after hitting a patch of ice causing her S-U-V to spin out of control and roll into the eastbound lane. One of the two passengers riding in the vehicle was hurt. Fortunately, though, the teen's injuries were not serious.
