Three juveniles injured in Saturday afternoon crash


Three juveniles were transported to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks after a single vehicle injury rollover crash Saturday afternoon. According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the crash occurred just after 2:30 p.m. northwest of Larimore, in Grand Forks County.

The Highway Patrol says a 1990 Lincoln Town Car, driven by a 16-year-old Larimore male, was northbound on 40th Street Northeast, negotiating a right curve, when the rear of his vehicle rotated to the right. The driver overcorrected, causing his vehicle to leave the roadway and enter the east ditch.

The vehicle overturned an undetermined number of times, before it came to rest on its roof on top of a tree in a ravine.

The driver and four passengers were in the vehicle. The driver and a passenger, a 16-year-old Grand Forks male, were transported to the hospital. Authorities say the driver had minor, non-life-threatening injuries, while the passenger had serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash is still under investigation.
