Three Teens Injured in Rice County Crash

Rice County Sheriff Troy Dunn issued a news release outlining details of a single-vehicle accident that happened Tuesday at Garfield Avenue and Union Lake Trail in Forest Township.

At 4:11PM Tuesday, Rice County deputies, Lonsdale Fire and Rescue and Northfield Ambulance were dispatched to the accident in the 6000 block of Lonsdale Boulevard West.

Upon arrival, the sheriff says the crash occurred on Garfield Avenue just south of Union Lake Trail. The vehicle was going south on Garfield.

According to the sheriff’s news release, “The driver lost control after going through the intersection of Union Lake Trail, ran off the road and entered the east ditch. The vehicle rolled at least once before coming to rest on its side in about two feet of water.”

Dunn says the vehicle was driven Shawn College, 16, of Lonsdale. He and two passengers, Shohieb Al-Faiyaad Zabar, 16, and Pavinn Nheth, 16, both of Lonsdale, were all transported to Northfield Hospital with “non-life threatening injuries.”

The driver was cited for failure to drive with due care and provisional license violations, and the sheriff says speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.

Dunn said, “Fortunately, all three juveniles were wearing their seatbelts, which likely saved them from more serious injuries or possibly even fatal injuries.”

Lonsdale police also assisted.
