A 22-year-old man was taken into custody amid possible charges for criminal vehicular operation after an all-terrain vehicle was flipped in the early hours of Sunday, Oct. 20, in Crosby.
Sgt. Mike Van Horn of the Crosby Police Department said officers responded to a report of a crash at 12:32 a.m. Sunday at Southwest Third Street and Southwest 11th Avenue in Crosby. There, they found an overturned side-by-side ATV. A passenger was taken to Cuyuna Regional Medical Center for injuries requiring treatment. Van Horn said the severity of the passenger's injuries were unknown as of Sunday evening.
The operator of the side-by-side was in custody Sunday at the Crow Wing County Jail, awaiting possible charges from the Crow Wing County Attorney’s Office for criminal vehicular operation, fleeing a peace officer and obstructing the legal process.
“Nobody died,” Van Horn emphasized at multiple points of a phone interview Sunday. “Somebody was arrested, but nobody died. Apparently, the chief has been getting some calls that somebody died. Nobody died.”
