A single car traveling north on Highway 9 outside of Donnelly on Tuesday afternoon rolled over, injuring the driver.

On Tuesday just after 1 p.m., the 2004 Toyota was traveling north in Highway 9 when the driver, Grace Barry of Dawson, Minn. heard a sound coming from her car, a spokesperson for the Minnesota State Patrol said.

Dawson lost control of her vehicle, which crossed the highway and flew 75 feet in the air before it rolled over. At the time of the crash, Barry was wearing her seatbelt, said the State Patrol.

Barry was transported to a local hospital with internal injuries and contusions and her vehicle was towed to Herman.

The Minnesota State Patrol, Stevens County Sheriff's Department, Stevens County Ambulance, and fire departments from both Morris and Donnelly responded to the crash.
