One person is dead and seven others injured in a three-vehicle accident on Highway 169, one mile north of Grand Casino in Onamia.
The victim, Shaun Jackson, 18, Onamia, died Sunday at North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale.
The accident happened about noon, the State Patrol reported.
Jackson was a passenger in a car driven by Daniel Weyaus, 23, Minneapolis. The State Patrol said Weyaus was driving northbound at a high rate of speed on Highway 169 when he attempted to pass a northbound Winnebago driven by William Congleton, 77, Frankfort, Ind., on the shoulder.
Weyaus' car hit the front right tire of the Winnebago and spun into the southbound vehicle of Denise Moen, 30, Fridley. Weyaus' car rolled into the ditch, and Moen's vehicle landed on its side in the ditch.
Jackson, Weyaus and two other passengers, Anthony Wehaus, 13, Onamia, and Angeline Eagle, Robbinsdale, were ejected from the car. None was wearing seat belts, the State Patrol reported.
Weyaus and Eagle were airlifted to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale. Weyaus was treated at the hospital and released and Eagle was in fair condition today, a hospital spokesperson said.
Wehaus was transported to Mille Lacs Health System in Onamia.
A passenger in Moen's vehicle, Dixie Olson, 43, Brooklyn Center, was also transported to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale where she was reported in fair condition today, a hospital spokesperson said.
Moen and two of her passengers: Brian Moen, 31, and Alexander Moen, 8, were treated at Mille Lacs Health System in Onamia and released. Two other passengers in Moen's vehicle were not injured.
Congleton and a passenger were not injured.
In another accident, an 18-year-old North Dakota man is dead following a single-vehicle rollover accident Saturday on Highway 10 near Bluffton.
Nick Rassier, Northwood, N.D., died at Tri-County Hospital in Wadena after being ejected from his vehicle. He was not wearing a seat belt.
Rassier was born in Aitkin and attended his junior year of high school there.
The State Patrol in Detroit Lakes reported Rassier apparently lost control of his vehicle after it went into the median. The accident was reported at 6:10 a.m.
A passenger in Rassier's vehicle, Shayde Holte, 18, also of Northwood, was treated at Tri-County Hospital in Wadena and released.
