Blackduck woman seriously injured in rollover crash

A Blackduck woman was seriously injured in a one-vehicle rollover crash just after midnight on Thursday.

According to the state patrol, 30-year-old Larissa Oakgrove of Blackduck was driving north on Highway 89 when she lost control of the Chevy Tahoe and rolled into the ditch near Ness Road.

Oakgrove was taken to Sanford Bemidji for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, as was one of her passengers.

Oakgrove’s other passenger, 50-year-old Dell Johnson of Blackduck, was transported to Sanford Fargo for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash.

Bemidji Fire and Ambulance, Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office, Red Lake Ambulance, and North Memorial assisted on scene.
