CARTHAGE - A woman suffered minor injuries in a Sunday morning crash south of Carthage.

Erin Rusher, 21, was traveling northbound on 425th Avenue in a 2006 Dodge pickup before losing control of the vehicle and rolling the pickup on the roadway, according to the Miner County Sheriff’s Office.

At about 4:30 a.m., Rusher lost control of the vehicle when it entered the east ditch. Rusher overcorrected and entered the west ditch, overcorrected again and rolled the vehicle onto its passenger side on the road, near the intersection with 227th Street, about 4½ miles south of Carthage.

Rusher was transported by Miner County Ambulance to a hospital in De Smet for treatment of minor injuries, and the vehicle was totaled. There were no passengers.

Deputy Rob Eggert said Rusher was wearing a seat belt.

“If she wasn’t wearing a seat belt, she could have been killed or seriously injured. The seat belt definitely saved her,” Eggert said.

The crash is still under investigation by the Miner County Sheriff’s Office.
