Menahga woman hurt in Hwy. 87 crash near Frazee

A Menahga woman was injured when her car left a slippery roadway and flipped on its side Monday morning, Nov. 4, on Hwy. 87 east of Frazee.

Annette Lynn Aschnewitz, 45, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Essentia St. Mary’s Hospital in Detroit Lakes, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

She was westbound on Hwy. 87 in a 2004 Honda CRV. There was snow and ice on the roadway, and she lost control on a curve by milepost 5, slid into a ditch and the Honda flipped on its side, landing on the driver’s side in a driveway entrance.

The airbag deployed and she was wearing a seatbelt. No alcohol was involved.

The accident was reported at 7:39 a.m. in Silver Leaf Township. St. Mary’s EMS assisted at the scene.
