A 19-year-old Grand Forks man was injured Saturday evening, then jailed, after he angrily drove off from an argument with a female friend and then crashed the car he was driving on Columbia Road.

According to Grand Forks police, Michael Hernandez had an altercation with a woman at Arby's restaurant at Columbia Road and 14th Avenue South, then got in his car and drove off at high speed.

He lost control, and the car, a 1998 Oldmobile Cutlass, ended up partly on the sidewalk. He was taken to Altru Hospital, just two blocks away, when he complained about pain in his rib cage. No one else was in the car or was injured in the crash.

Released after treatment at Altru, Hernandez was cited for failing to control his vehicle, driving without a license, and was jailed for unpaid fines for previous offenses in municipal court, a police sergeant said.
