ADRIAN — The Minnesota State Patrol responded to a one-vehicle rollover Friday afternoon on Interstate 90 near mile post 30 that involved a passenger van with eight occupants.

According to the State Patrol’s media report, Kuku Adris Amoday, 55, of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, was driving a 2004 Ford E350 passenger van eastbound on Interstate 90 in snow and icy conditions when the vehicle left the roadway and rolled multiple times. The crash was reported at 1:52 p.m.

Amoday was not injured, however, the seven passengers — all of whom were wearing seatbelts — were transported to Sanford Worthington Medical Center with what were believed to be non-life threatening injuries.

Passengers included Lemuna Abasa, 27, of Sioux Falls; Til Bhandari, 50, of Sioux Falls; Agra Talla Dalli, 61, of Sioux Falls; Nati Hamid Gali, 44, of Charlotte, North Carolina; Karish K. Kelembi, 64, of Sioux Falls; Biya Tolli Kotudi, 62, of Sioux Falls; and Hanan Shadu, 44, of Sioux Falls.

Assisting at the scene were the Nobles County Sheriff’s Office, Adrian Fire Department, Adrian Rescue and Adrian Ambulance.
