Unlicensed teen in accident
An unlicensed teenager from White Earth was driving a vehicle that struck another vehicle in Detroit Lakes earlier this week.
According to the police report, the 16-year-old driver was northbound on Frazee Street when he went through a stop sign and smashed into a vehicle driven by William Gene Santaro, 56, of Detroit Lakes, who did not sustain serious injuries.
A passenger in the minor’s vehicle was taken by ambulance to Essentia St. Mary’s after having a hard time breathing. The owner of the vehicle, Merlin Dakota of White Earth, was cited for no insurance and allowing the illegal operation of a vehicle.
