HANNAFORD, N.D. - A 17-year-old Casselton girl is in the hospital after rolling her car near here Tuesday.

Authorities believe the driver - who wasn't named in the release - had been drinking and was speeding, according to a release from Griggs County Sheriff Robert Hook. She may face juvenile charges related to the crash.

The 17-year-old was taken by ambulance to Cooperstown Medical Center and later airlifted to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo.

Authorities responded at about 6:10 p.m. Tuesday to a call from a trucker reporting a one-vehicle rollover near mile marker 106 on North Dakota Highway 1, about a mile north of Hannaford, N.D.

The girl had been driving northbound on Highway 1 and lost control of the car on a curve on top of a hill, according to the news release from the sheriff's office.

The car went into a skid and slid into the ditch sideways before it overturned and began to cartwheel, the release stated. The car rolled up and over a large round hay bale and slammed to the ground, coming to rest on its wheels, authorities say.

The girl was able to get out of the car and get to the road, where she got help from a passing truck driver and other motorists.

The car was a total loss and was towed from the scene.

The accident is under investigation. Witnesses said the car had passed them several miles south of the scene and appeared to be traveling very fast and out of control, according to the release from Hook.
