NEW ROCKFORD, N.D. - Three people were seriously injured in a one-vehicle rollover accident Sunday night near New Rockford.

Police say alcohol was a factor in a rollover that injured three people near New Rockford last night.

According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, Sherri Houle, 28, of Devils Lake was driving north on U.S. Highway 281 around 9 p.m. Sunday when she failed to negotiate a curve. The 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer she was operating then entered the ditch and rolled several times.

Her passengers, Andrew Shaw, 23, and Reese Ironshield, 24, both of Fort Totten, were ejected from the vehicle. All three people were transported to the Carrington hospital and Houle was later flown to a hospital in Fargo.

Houle was charged with driving under the influence and driving under suspension, according to the report.
