Teen Could be Charged in Griggs County Rollover

Posted: Updated:

Alcohol and speed are likely factors in a crash that landed a 17-year-old in the hospital Tuesday night. The Griggs County Sheriff's Office took a 911 call just after 6:10 p.m. of a vehicle rollover at mile post 106 on Highway 1 about one mile north of Hannaford, North Dakota.

The teenager lost control of her car on a curve on top of a hill. The vehicle began to skid and slid into the ditch sideways where it overturned and began to cartwheel. The car went up and over a large hay bale and slammed to the ground.

The driver was able to get out of the car and make her way to the road where she flagged down a passing truck driver, and other motorists, for help.

The driver, a 17-year-old from Cassleton, ND, was transported to Cooperstown Medical Center and later air lifted to Sanford Hospital in Fargo.

The accident remains under investigation by the Griggs County Sheriff's Office, but they say alcohol and high rate of speed were contributing factors in the crash.  Witnesses say the vehicle passed them earlier and it appeared to be traveling very fast and out of control.

Possible charges are pending against the Casselton teenager. The vehicle was a total loss.
