In the Oct. 30 Monitor-News it was reported that Pamela D. Uhden, 51, of DeGraff was a passenger in a one-vehicle crash Oct. 26 and had suffered minor injuries. The information came from the Minnesota State Patrol’s media web site page.
Last week, Uhden contacted the Monitor-News to say that she had not been involved in the accident, but rather witnessed it happen. She then went to the aid of the people involved in the accident, getting blood on herself in the process. The state trooper at the scene suggested that she go to the hospital to be checked because of her close contact with the blood of those injured in the accident, she said.
The Monitor-News checked the State Patrol media web site Nov. 5 and the information stating Uhden was a passenger in the vehicle was still listed in the accident report. However, a phone call to the southwest district office of the State Patrol confirmed Uhden’s version of the story.
