July 16, 2012
An older Minnesota driver who bounced in and out of a highway ditch unknowingly lost her backseat passenger, who was ejected through a broken window.
The 72-year-old driver, Louise Ericksen was driving on Highway 72 in Beltrami County when her car strayed into the ditch, hit a sign and broke a back window.
As the car bounced along the rough terrain, a 15-year-old girl was ejected out the window.
Ericksen maneuvered her vehicle back on the highway and continued on without realizing the girl was missing.
Later, she drove back to get the girl who was waiting for her unharmed.
