7 Teens in Rollover in East Grand Forks, MN

On Saturday, 7 teenagers were involved in a rollover accident on Highway 220 in East Grand Forks, Minnesota. The driver of the vehicle, a 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser, was heading northbound on Highway 220 when he left the paved portion of the road onto the right shoulder, over corrected to left, crossed the southbound lanes of traffic, entered the right ditch and rolled.

Two people were ejected from the vehicle. The other 5 had to be extricated from the Chrysler PT Cruiser. Six of the teens were transported to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks, one in serious condition, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office assisted.

One of the passengers was not injured, according to the Minnesota State Patrol announcement.

The road conditions were dry at the time.

How Do Passengers Get Paid by the Driver’s Insurance Company?

Almost immediately after an accident, an insurance company representative will contact a parent of an injured child. That person will ask how the child is doing and be very friendly. The insurance representative may offer some money right away as a settlement.

Our best advice is not to say anything, sign anything or accept any money from an insurance company until you talk to a lawyer. Most people don’t know how much a case is worth and don’t know how to engage in legal negotiations. If you are unsure, you can contact a lawyer at our law firm and take to them for free, at no obligation.
