A Fergus Falls man was taken to the hospital last night after he rolled his vehicle on County Highway 10 east of Elizabeth.

According to the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Department, Kent Salwei, 48, was driving his vehicle on the highway at about 7 p.m. when he lost control, rolling his vehicle and ending up in a shallow pool of water on the side of the road.
