Infant survives being ejected from car during St. Louis Co. rollover


An infant and a woman are alive after being ejected from a vehicle in St. Louis County.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the driver – Cordaro Houle, 28, of White Bear Lake – admitted to falling asleep behind the wheel Monday around 4 p.m.

The incident happened on Highway 53 near Swan Lake Road. The Hyundai Elantra rolled into the median and both passengers were ejected, the State Patrol says.

The driver, front passenger and infant were not belted to the vehicle, authorities say.

The passengers and driver suffered injures that are not life threatening and were taken to St. Mary's Medical Center in Duluth, the State Patrol says. Officials note alcohol did not play a role in the crash.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, wearing a seatbelt reduces the risk of crash related deaths and injuries by about 50 percent.
