A five-year-old child was seriously injured in a crash Saturday evening near Lake George.
Hubbard County Sheriff’s deputies responded to the scene on County Road 4 and found one vehicle on its roof in a lane of traffic and another vehicle in the ditch with debris scattered.
The five-year-old victim was bleeding profusely from a head injury. They were ultimately airlifted from the scene to a Sanford Hospital in Fargo.
After medical personnel arrived on the scene, officers began investigating the crash.
According to the release, 30-year-old Daniel Keezer of Bemidji was northbound on County 4 when he reportedly fell asleep and veered into the oncoming lane of traffic and into a southbound Cadillac, driven by 26-year-old Jamie Hill of Dent.
The five-year-old was a passenger in Hill’s vehicle. Two other passengers in Hill’s vehicle only received minor injuries.
Keezer admitted to deputies that he smoked marijuana prior to the crash.
Deputies, after obtaining a search warrant, took a blood sample from Keezer. He was also airlifted to Fargo for a head injury.
