A 60-year-old Frazee man was injured after his vehicle rolled Saturday, according to a news release from the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office.

Ronald M. Albrecht was headed eastbound on County Hwy. 36 near State Hwy. 228 at 11:15 a.m. As the road curved to the north, he went onto the shoulder of the road and overcorrected, causing the vehicle to skid across the road into the ditch on the other side.

He tried to bring the car back onto the roadway when the car rolled onto the oncoming lane of traffic, coming to a rest on its roof and ejecting the driver. Albrecht was not wearing his seatbelt.

Albrecht suffered non-life threatening injuries including broken legs and lacerations to his head. Perham Ambulance took him to Perham Memorial Hospital, and he was later airlifted to Fargo.
