Perham man injured in rollover accident

PERHAM, Minn. – A Perham man was seriously injured Saturday in a one-vehicle rollover accident north of the city, the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Kelly Amund Melgard, 30, was the lone person in the vehicle, a 2008 Ford F-250 pickup, the sheriff’s office reported.

Rescuers were dispatched to the crash site on 450th Street, west of County Highway 51, just before 7 p.m., the report said.

Melgard was initially taken to Perham Hospital before being airlifted to a Fargo hospital, the report said.

An Essentia Health spokeswoman said Sunday that Melgard was not at that hospital. A spokewoman at Sanford Medical Center refused to say if Melgard had been admitted.
