(Red Lake County, MN) -- A driver and his passenger are recovering after a rollover crash in Red Lake County, Minnesota Wednesday morning.

The Minnesota State Patrol says 63-year-old Daniel Carpenter of Thief River Falls was driving his Ford southbound on Highway 59, two miles north of Plummer, when he lost control on icy roads, ran off road to the right and rolled.

Carpenter and his passenger, 21-year-old Keric William Ronald Carpenter, both suffered non-life threatening injuries and were transported to Sanford's Thief River Falls location.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, which does remain under investigation.
