A Deer Creek woman and her 5-year-old son were taken by ambulance to Perham Health after their Mercury Grand Marquis went off the road near the intersection of county highway 67 and 142.

According to the county sheriff’s office, Jennifer Magnusson, 31, was driving south on 67 (near New York Mills) when she lost control on a curve. Her car went into the east ditch and rolled several times before crossing over 142 and ending up in the south ditch.

Magnusson was belted and her son was in a booster seat, and law enforcement said their injuries don’t appear to be life threatening. Magnusson suffered from pain all over her body at the scene, and her child sustained a cut to his hand.
