A car lost control on Mesaba Ave. and Third Ave. W Saturday morning, leaving two people injured.

Duluth Police say the car was headed south when it traveled over the median and across opposite lanes of traffic before crashing into a guard rail.

The driver and one passenger both suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to Essentia Health-St. Mary's.

After being released from the hospital, the driver was brought to the Saint Louis County Jail for felony criminal vehicular operation, gross misdemeanor DWI, reckless driving and no proof of insurance. The investigation is still active.
