A Fargo, N.D., woman suffered minor injuries in a single-vehicle crash reported at 8:47 p.m. Wednesday on Long Lake Drive Northeast north of County Road 20.
According to a report from the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office:
Carolyn Townsend, 54, was driving a 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe north on Long Lake Drive Northeast when the vehicle went off the roadway and was sucked into a ditch. Rather than correcting and facing the potential of overcorrecting, Townsend rode into the ditch and hit an embankment.
She suffered a split lip that required stitches. She was taken to North Country Regional Hospital by a deputy.
