Jackson County Rollover Injures Fairmont Woman

Mon 12-31-2018

(Jackson, Mn.)-- A Fairmont woman was injured Saturday in a single vehicle crash on Highway 71 at mile post 10 in Jackson county.

The Minnesota State Patrol says 23-year-old Osmara Moreno Giron of Fairmont was driving a 2006 Pontiac Torrent northbound. Troopers say the vehicle traveled into the southbound lane after Giron looked down at something. Troopers say Giron over-corrected after the vehicle hit the shoulder, causing it to slide sideways. It then went into the ditch and rolled multiple times.

Giron was taken to Sanford Jackson Medical Center.

The Jackson County Sheriff's Office, the Jackson Fire Department and Jackson Ambulance assisted on the scene.

The crash took place shortly after 11:30 am.
