HUBBARD COUNTY — A Solway woman has been injured after hitting a deer at a high speed on Sunday in Hubbard County. After responding to the scene, law enforcement found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in her vehicle.

According to a release from Hubbard County Sheriff Cory Aukes, at 5:06 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16, deputies received a report of a single-vehicle crash on Hubbard County Road 9 in Rockwood Township.

Deputies arrived to find the driver of the vehicle being attended to by medical personnel from Bemidji Ambulance Service.

The investigation showed that 24-year-old Hanna Saul of Solway was driving a 2014 Hyundai westbound on County Road 9 at high speed when she struck a deer. Saul lost control of her vehicle and drove into the ditch on the opposite side of the road, the release said.

Saul’s vehicle skidded 483 feet when it went through a fence and came to a stop in a tree line, causing substantial damage to the vehicle. Saul was transported by ambulance to Sanford Medical Center in Bemidji, and later to a Fargo hospital.

Deputies located several drug paraphernalia items inside the vehicle including marijuana wax, a marijuana grinder, two bags of marijuana and marijuana vape cartridges.

Saul admitted to using marijuana the night before and to driving 80 miles per hour prior to the crash, the release said.

She exhibited signs of impairment and a search warrant was obtained for a sample of her blood. The sample was sent to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension lab and the Hubbard County Sheriff’s Office is currently awaiting the results.
