FAIRHAVEN (WJON News) -- A Clearwater woman was hurt in a crash near Fairhaven Wednesday night. The incident happened around 8:40 p.m. on County Road 44 near Ashview Road.
The Stearns County Sheriff's Office says a car was going west on County Road 44 when it lost control around a curve, crossed the center line, entered the south ditch, hit a road approach, and rolled.
