Details: On 12/02/2021 at 1949, hours the Douglas County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call reporting a 2 vehicle accident near the address of 13300 Co Rd 17 SE. The 911 caller reported one female party unconscious. Douglas County Sheriff's Deputies, Minnesota State Patrol, North Memorial Ambulance, Forada First Responders, and the Pope County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene.
Initial investigation indicated a vehicle pulling an enclosed trailer was stalled in the northbound lane. The trailer had become detached from the truck while travelling northbound, so the vehicle had pulled over to fix the problem. Parties on scene reported a Ford Explorer, driven by Paul Carlsen, was northbound on Co Rd 17 approaching the stalled motorist. A Chevy S-10, driven by Samantha Jacobs, was southbound on Co Rd 17 also approaching the stalled motorist. As the Explorer pulled out to pass the truck and trailer, the Explorer and S-10 collided resulting in a head on collision. Samantha was treated on scene by the Forada First Responders and North Memorial Ambulance. She was later transported to Alomere Health ER by Ambulance for suspected serious injuries. Samantha was later discharged from the ER in stable condition. Paul and Samantha's passenger, Dylin Baker, were checked by the ambulance on scene, no suspected injuries.
The Douglas County Deputies would like to thank the Forada First Responders, North Memorial Ambulance, the Pope County Sheriff's Office, and the Minnesota State Patrol for their assistance on scene.

Officer: Deputy Nate Larson, #219
