Colfax teen injured in Richland rolloverAn 18-year-old Colfax, N.D., man suffered serious injuries Friday after he was ejected from his sport utility vehicle on County Road 10 near Wahpeton.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol responded to the accident after receiving a call about 5:50 a.m.
According to the patrol, Richard Hable was traveling westbound when his vehicle drifted into the north ditch before overcorrecting his steering, causing the vehicle to roll over as it came back onto the roadway.
He was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle, the patrol said.
Hable was taken by ambulance to St. Francis Hospital in Breckenridge, Minn., before being taken by Life Flight to Fargo’s MeritCare Hospital.
No one else was in the vehicle.
