Solway woman injured in high-speed crash with a deer

A Solway woman ultimately needed transport to a Fargo hospital for presumed injuries sustained in a high-speed crash in Solway Saturday afternoon.

According to a release from Hubbard County Sheriff Cory Aukes, the 24-year-old woman was westbound on County Road 9 at a high rate of speed when she struck a deer.

Hanna Saul lost control of the 2014 Hyundai and entered the ditch, skidding more than 400 feet, and crashing through a fence before coming to a stop at the tree line.

Saul was transported to Sanford Bemidji by ambulance before being taken to a Fargo hospital.

Deputies located numerous drug paraphernalia items inside the vehicle including marijuana wax, a marijuana grinder, two bags of marijuana and marijuana vape cartridges. Saul admitted to driving 80 miles an hour prior to the crash and to using marijuana the night before.

The release says Saul exhibited signs of impairment and a search warrant was obtained for a blood sample, which was sent to the BCA lab with results pending.
