| No Comments

Minnesota State Patrol says the driver of an SUV that rolled over north of interstate 694 in Fridley on Saturday night had been drinking, the Star Tribune reports.

The driver, 35-year-old Jennifer Teetzel, was also the only person inside the SUV to be wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, Minnesota State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske said. All seven of the SUV's occupants, ranging in age from four to 47, were sent to the hospital for treatment of their injuries and are in serious condition, KMSP reports.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash, which left the SUV on its roof on University Ave. Court records show that Teetzel has had run ins with the law over drunken driving prior to Saturday's accident, including a 2009 conviction for for third-degree drunken driving, and a careless driving case in 2003 where a charge of fourth-degree drunken driving had been dismissed.
