A rollover crash in Stearns County ejected three people from the vehicle - sending two of them to the hospital - early Sunday morning, according to the Stearns County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say around 3:51 a.m., the sheriff's office was dispatched to County Road 43 at 185th Street in Eden Lake Township for a reported one-vehicle rollover.

A preliminary investigation shows a 2013 Kia Optima, owned by Kimberly Patience Donnay, was traveling northbound on CR 43 when the driver lost control, entered the west ditch and rolled several times.

Authorities say 25-year-olds Donnay of Paynesville and Phillip Krumwiede of Eden Valley, along with 27-year-old Kyle Gabrelcik of Eden Valley, were ejected from the car.

Two of the victims were transported to the CentraCare Hospital in Paynesville for treatment, while the third victim had minor injuries and refused medical transport, authorities say. It is unclear who was transported.

The sheriff’s office was assisted by the Eden Valley Police Department, Eden Valley Rescue squad, and Paynesville Ambulance. The accident remains under investigation.
