Three women were heading east on US Highway 2 when control of the vehicle was lost. 

According to Highway Patrol, the 76-year-old front seat passenger took control of the steering wheel so the 73-year-old driver could make a phone call. 

Then the vehicle then left the roadway and went into the south ditch, vaulting over a private driveway and rolling an undetermined number of times. 

Everyone in the vehicle suffered life-threatening injuries, including a 71-year-old passenger, and were transported by ambulance to a Devils Lake hospital. They were then airlifted to another medical facility due to the seriousness of injury.
