REMER — A teen died in the early morning hours of Sunday, Sept. 18, when his car rolled over in Cass County.
The 17-year-old driver from Remer was westbound in a 2003 Buick Century on Highway 200 in Lima Township at 1 a.m. when he attempted to straighten out in a slight curve, going off the roadway to the right, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
The car struck the road approach, went airborne, landed sideways and rolled over, ejecting the unbelted teen, according to the crash report.
The Cass County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the site of the crash. Alcohol is believed to be a factor, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. The air bag was not deployed.
The Minnesota State Patrol stated it would release the name of the driver at 7 a.m. Monday.
Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
