Three people, including one child, were injured in a rollover in Carlton County on Sunday.

The Minnesota State Patrol said a Dodge Ram was headed north on an icy Interstate 35 at Highway 210 when it rolled over into the median at about 9:30 a.m. Some bystanders stopped to help, when another vehicle rolled over in the same spot, hitting a couple of people.

Troopers said the passenger of the first vehicle, 4-year-old Cameron Moroney of Hugo, and a pedestrian, 32-year-old Adam Roen of Eveleth, were seriously injured. The driver of the second vehicle, 57-year-old Lawrence Sommer of Cottage Grove, was also seriously injured.

The driver of the first vehicle, 55-year-old Kathleen Haapala of White Bear Lake, was uninjured.

All patients were brought to hospitals in Cloquet and Duluth, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
