Teen transported following rollover
Seventeen-year-old Samantha Snavely, of Sioux Rapids, was transported to Spencer Hospital by Spencer Ambulance after the 2006 Pontiac G6 she was driving rolled Friday, Oct. 5.
At approximately 3:35 p.m., Clay County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call of a vehicle in the ditch in the 4100 mile of U.S. Highway 71.
The sheriff's report alleged that Snavely, driving a vehicle owned by Angela Althaus, was traveling northbound on 71 when she drove onto the east shoulder of the road. Snavely overcorrected according to the report, re-entered 71, and lost control, spinning approximately 180 degrees as the vehicle entered the east ditch. The Pontiac is estimated to have rolled two times before coming to rest facing southeast.
Damage to the Pontiac is estimated at $2,500.
Snavely was cited for failure to maintain control.
Royal Fire and Rescue also assisted at the scene.
