A 17-year-old from Stewart was injured in a one-vehicle crash in Renville County Saturday afternoon.
The Renville County Sheriff’s Office says Caleb Fox was taken to Hutchinson Health for treatment of serious injuries.
Authorities say responders located a car driven by Fox that had struck two power poles and was partially off the ground leaning against one of them.
Fox was able to free himself from the vehicle and was found walking towards a residence when he was picked up and taken to the hospital.
Fox indicated that he had swerved to miss an animal in the roadway and entered the ditch. He continued driving in the ditch while attempting to get back onto the roadway. Fox struck a utility pole causing the vehicle to rollover and strike a second pole.
The crash happened at 4pm on County Road 20, north of 850th Avenue, which is about 11 miles northeast of Buffalo Lake.
The crash remains under investigation.
