The Fayette County Sheriff's Office says alcohol may have been involved in an accident that sent two people to the hospital on Thursday.

Deputies were sent to the 2700 block of Bush Road, southeast of Wadena, for a report of a single vehicle accident.

Deputies say 48-year-old Kimberly Kaye Henriksen of Elgin lost control of her minivan, went into the ditch and struck the embankment at a high speed.

A passenger in the van, 52-year-old Glen Arthur Little of Elgin was also injured.  Little and Henriksen were both taken to Palmer Hospital.

Henriksen is charged with failure to maintain control and no valid drivers license.  Further charges are pending after results of a blood test.
