Two teens injured in Clearwater County crash

Two teenagers from Fargo were injured in a crash Wednesday evening in Clearwater County.

According to a release from the Minnesota State Patrol, 19-year-old Britt Names was northbound on Highway 200 when he drifted into the west ditch, striking a culvert before flipping the Chevy Trailblazer onto its side.

He was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Sanford Bagley, and his 16-year-old passenger was treated for her injuries at Fargo.

The girl was not wearing a seat belt, according to the report.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash, and roads were reportedly dry at the time of the crash.
