Vehicle rollover injures two near Vergas, Minn.

A one-vehicle rollover accident in Otter Tail County on Friday night injured two West Fargo men.

The Otter Tail Sheriff’s Department responded to the accident about 10:18 p.m. Friday.

According to a news release, the 1999 Ford pickup was eastbound on County Highway 4 west of Vergas, Minn., when it lost control and tipped on its side. It came to rest in the ditch on the north side of the road.

The driver, 35-year-old David Updahl, and 30-year-old Nicolas Pulkrabek, both of West Fargo, were transported to St. Mary’s Innovis Health in Detroit Lakes, Minn., and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash, the news release said.
