Incident: ATV Crash/Rollover

Location: County Road 36 NE/NW Irene Road NE, Miltona Township, Douglas County

Case Details:

On the above date and time, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office received a 9-1-1 report of a possible missing person that had been operating an ATV in the area of Lake Irene and County Road 36 NE. The family members then advised that they located the 4 year old female that had been a passenger on the ATV. A short time later the family members reported that they located the overturned ATV and Sowada was still trapped under the ATV.

The Miltona First Responders, Parkers Prairie Ambulance, North Ambulance, Life Link III helicopter, and Douglas County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene. Family members were able to move the ATV and free Sowada. Sowada was examined and treated on scene by ambulance personnel. She was later transported to Alomere Hospital in Alexandria by Parkers Prairie Ambulance for further treatment. Her injuries were not life threatening. The 4 year old female passenger was uninjured.

Deputies determined that the crash/rollover occurred as Sowada was operating the ATV very close the shoulder of NW Irene Road NE and the ATV rolled into the ditch. Sowada stated that as the ATV rolled over, the 4 year old passenger was ejected from the ATV. Neither Sowada or the 4 year old passenger were wearing a helmet.

Officer: Sheriff Troy Wolbersen
