18-year-old Colfax man recovering from serious injuries after rollover

An 18-year-old Colfax, N.D., man is recovering from serious injuries today after he was ejected this morning from his car as it rolled over on County Road 10 near Wahpeton.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol responded to the call after receiving a report of the accident about 5:50 a.m. today.

According to the patrol, Richard Hable was traveling westbound when it drifted into the north ditch and the driver over corrected, causing the vehicle to roll over as it came back onto the roadway. He was ejected from the vehicle.

Hable was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Breckenridge, Minn., before being taken by Life Flight to Fargo’s MeritCare hospital.

No one else was in the vehicle.
