FERGUS FALLS, Minn. - An 11-year-old girl injured in a crash near Spitzer Lake on Oct. 14 died Monday, according to the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Department.

The girl was identified as Claire Turner.

No additional information was released Monday.

The Sheriff's Office reported earlier that a female driver of an SUV traveling westbound on county Highway 38 lost control of the vehicle near the intersection with county Highway 81.

The SUV went into the north ditch and rolled over, ejecting Turner, who had been in a rear passenger seat.

Turner was initially taken to Lake Region Hospital in Fergus Falls and later taken to a Fargo hospital.

The driver and two other passengers in the vehicle were treated and released from Lake Region Hospital after the crash.
