Thief River Falls man seriously injured in rollover crash

A Thief River Falls man was seriously injured in a rollover crash near Erskine Wednesday morning.

The state patrol says 36-year-old Kyle Larson was southbound on Highway 59 when the Dodge Caravan left the road, rolling several times before coming to a rest on its roof.

Larson was transported to Sanford Hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office, Erskine Fire, Essentia Ambulance and Sanford Air Care assisted at the scene.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor, and speed was not mentioned in the release.
