BLACKDUCK, Minn. (AP) – The Minnesota State Patrol says a driver who bounced in and out of a highway ditch unknowingly lost her backseat passenger, who was ejected through a broken window.

The patrol says the 72-year-old driver, Louise Ericksen, was driving southbound on Highway 72 in Beltrami County Sunday when her car strayed into the ditch, hit a sign and broke a back window. As the car bounced along the rough terrain, 15-year-old Kendall Ericksen was ejected out the broken window.

The driver maneuvered her Impala back on the highway and continued southbound without realizing Kendall was missing.

The Duluth News Tribune says when the driver and a front seat passenger discovered Kendall wasn’t there, they drove back to the area where they had gone in the ditch and found her standing alongside the highway. She wasn’t seriously injured.
