A Menahga woman was treated and released from St. Joseph's Area Health Services early Wednesday morning following a one-car accident south of Park Rapids. The accident occurred just before 7 a.m.

Rickia Furgerson, 18, was on Highway 71 when her vehicle left the road and went into the ditch, authorities said. The vehicle came to a rest up against a grove of trees near the intersection of County Road 87.

The accident is under investigation, but authorities at the scene said the accident was possibly caused by a medical condition.

The Minnesota State Patrol and Hubbard County Sheriff's department responded. She was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
