The O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office reports that about 2:10 PM, 16-year-old Sheldon Blue of Granite Falls, MN was westbound on B46, three miles south and about a mile west of Primghar in a 2008 Chevy.
The deputy’s report says Blue lost control of the vehicle on the gravel surface. He over-corrected, and the car skidded across the roadway and entered the north ditch where it rolled onto its top.
Both Blue and a passenger in the vehicle, 18-year-old Hoksida Mountain of Granite Falls, were transported to Baum Harmon Mercy Hospital in Primghar by Primghar Ambulance.
Blue’s Chevy received $5400 damage.
He was charged with Failure To Have A Valid Driver’s License and Failure To Maintain Control.
