Clocked at 86 mph, driver rolls vehicle with 3 passengers in the car near Hastings

A 17-year-old passenger suffered life-threatening injuries.

A 17-year-old girl suffered life-threatening injuries Monday afternoon while riding as a passenger in a vehicle driven by a man who was clocked by a deputy at nearly 90 mph. 

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a 26-year-old Cannon Falls man was driving a 1994 Honda Civic south on Hwy. 61 when a deputy clocked him going 86 mph in a 60 mph zone in Marshan Township, south of Hastings in Dakota County. 

The deputy made a U-turn and tried to make a traffic stop but the driver continued on, attempting to pass a semi trailer and another car on a hill. At the top of the hill, the driver swerved to avoid a northbound vehicle and veered back into the southbound lanes at a high rate of speed before rolling multiple times in the ditch. 

A 17-year-old Hastings girl was one of three passengers in the Honda. She suffered life-threatening injuries and was transported to Regions Hospital in St. Paul. The State Patrol said she was not wearing a seat belt. 

Two other passengers, a 20-year-old Hastings man and a 14-year-old girl, sustained injuries that are not life-threatening. They were taken to Regions Hospital. 

The driver of the Honda was also taken to Regions Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He was not wearing a seat belt, the State Patrol said.
