A driver, who appeared to travel at a high rate of speed entering a curve in the road Sunday evening, was injured in a rollover, according to a news release from the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office. Alcohol use was believed to be a factor.

The 27-year-old Minneapolis man was driving a 1998 Honda Accord just after 7 p.m. on County Hwy. 41 near Star Lake when he lost control and rolled into the west ditch.

According to witnesses, the vehicle appeared to be traveling at a high rate of speed as it entered a curve with a posted 35 mph speed limit.

The vehicle ended up on its roof, and the driver sustained non-life threatening injuries.

Ringdahl Ambulance took him to Perham Hospital.

He was not wearing a seat belt.

The Dent Fire Department and first responders, Minnesota State Patrol and Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the scene.
