Four injured, three seriously, in Hubbard County crash

Four were injured, three seriously, in a Hubbard County crash Saturday morning.

According to a release from Hubbard County Sheriff Cory Aukes, around 10:30 a.m. Saturday, first responders arrived to find multiple victims with serious injuries, with two people needing to be extricated from the vehicle. 

A Mazda driver, 41-year-old Megan Faundeen of St. Cloud, was westbound on County Road 33 in Nevis Township when she drove off the road and hit an approach, going airborne before coming to a stop.

Faundeen was seriously injured and after she was extricated from her vehicle, she was airlifted to the Hennepin County Medical Center.

Two teenage passengers in the vehicle were also seriously injured, with one flown to Hennepin County Medical center and the other to the Sanford Hospital in Fargo. 

The fourth Mazda occupant, another teenager, suffered a broken wrist and was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Park Rapids.

The Nevis and Akeley Fire and Rescue departments responded to the scene, as did North Ambulance and three life-flight helicopters.

The crash remains under investigation.
