A Hewitt man was treated and released from Tri-County Hospital after being trapped under a 4-wheeler Thursday.

Jeremiah Joseph Liebersbach, 18, was driving a 4-wheeler near Hewitt at about 6 p.m. when he allegedly drove into a soft spot on the side of the road, causing the 4-wheeler to roll and come to rest on top of him.

Wadena Ambulance, Hewitt Rescue, Wadena Police Department and Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Department responded and lifted the 4-wheeler off of Liebersbach.

Despite reporting pain in his right leg and shoulder, Liebersbach had no broken bones or major injuries.
