(Fargo, ND) -- We're learning more about what actually took place early Thursday morning in a South Fargo car crash.

Fargo Fire Marshal Ryan Erickson tells WDAY Radio his crews arrived on scene a little after 2 a.m. to reports of a rollover crash and a transformer hit at The Nest apartment complex, just east of West Acres Mall and I-94 off 35th street south.

Neighbors in the area say a car was on its side, and that power for some Xcel Energy customers was knocked out. Fargo Fire stayed at the scene for nearly two hours as work to restore power took place, and a tow truck arrived to take the car away.

Fargo Police now confirm to WDAY Radio that a juvenile driver was headed down the roadway at a high rate of speed when they lost control of the car, struck multiple items including mailboxes and a transformer in the ground, then rolled the car into the apartment complex.

Both the driver and the passenger are being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The driver is facing several charges, including DUI.
