ALEXANDRIA — A 2-year-old boy was injured in a one-vehicle crash on Interstate-94 near Alexandria Monday, Aug. 8 at about 6:15 p.m.
Amber Sue Swenson, 31, of Moorhead was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Malibu
west on I-94 near mile post 97 in LaGrand Township when the Malibu crossed the lanes of traffic and hit the median cables. This caused the Malibu to roll over the cables before coming to rest, facing east on the eastbound I-94 shoulder, according to the State Patrol.
The boy, one of two passengers, was transported to Alomere Health in Alexandria with what are believed to be non-life threatening injuries, according to the State Patrol. The boy was secured by a seat belt.
Swenson and another passenger, Paul Andrew Sanchez, 37, of Moorhead, were both wearing seat belts and weren't injured, according to the State Patrol.
Agencies that assisted in the crash included the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, North Memorial Ambulance and the State Patrol.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
