An 18-year-old woman was taken by ambulance to St. Joseph's Area Health Services Wednesday morning following a one-vehicle accident just west of Hubbard.

The accident occurred around 10:35 a.m.

The eastbound vehicle either swerved to miss something on Highway 87 or officers at the scene questioned whether the driver had turned around to check on a baby in the back seat.

The woman suffered facial injuries from the air bag deploying, and possibly striking the rear view mirror, authorities at the scene said. She was not wearing a seat belt. The car ended up in a wooded section off the highway.

The accident is under investigation.

Hubbard County deputies, Park Rapids police and North Memorial Ambulance personnel responded.
