3 hurt in rollover near ManvelMANVEL, N.D. - Three people were injured in a one-vehicle rollover accident Tuesday morning along Interstate 29 north of Grand Forks.
Adrian Duck, 24, Grand Forks, was in satisfactory condition Tuesday afternoon at Altru Hospital, while two others in the vehicle were treated and released, according to a hospital spokeswoman.
According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, Shelby O’Brien, 19, Grand Forks, was driving a 1998 Dodge Caravan northbound on I-29 about 2 miles south of the Manvel exit at 6:05 a.m. when the accident occurred.
According to the report, the driver became distracted and disoriented while driving through a road construction zone after missing her exit in Grand Forks to turn south toward Fargo.
After the vehicle traveled onto the highway’s shoulder, she overcorrected, which resulted in the vehicle traveling into the east ditch. The vehicle rolled approximately twice, coming to rest on all four tires, facing southeast, according to the report.
Duck, who was in the back seat and not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle, coming to rest in a small amount of water in the east ditch, the Highway Patrol said.
O’Brien and another passenger, Clark Krueger, 33, Grand Forks, were wearing seat belts.
All three were transported to Altru. O’Brien and Krueger were treated and released.
The Highway Patrol was assisted at the scene by Manvel Fire Department.
