Two teens from Audubon County were injured Monday evening during a rollover accident three-miles southeast of Audubon. The Audubon County Sheriff’s Department says the driver of the vehicle, 16-year old Morgan Kathleen Parris, of Audubon, and her passenger, 15-year old Drew James Christensen, of Exira, were injured. Parris was transported to the Audubon County Hospital, while Christensen refused medical treatment.

Officials say the 2006 Toyota Parris was driving was traveling east on 215th Street at around 7:20-p.m., when it went out of control as it crested a hill. When Parris over-corrected, the vehicle entered the north ditch and rolled over. The damage was estimated at $20,000. The accident remains under investigation.
