Four injured in rollover crash

BEMIDJI– Four were injured in a rollover crash in Bemidji Friday afternoon.

According to a report from the state patrol, 36-year-old Lavonne Sweedman of Deer River was westbound on Highway 2 in a Jeep Grand Cherokee near the Carr Lake Overpass when she entered the ditch to the right and rolled.

The Jeep came to a rest on its roof. Snow and ice may have contributed to the crash.

Sweedman and her three passengers were treated for non-life threatening injuries at Sanford Health, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
