SUTHERLAND—A 27-year-old Paullina man received minor injuries in a one-vehicle crash Sunday, Oct. 17, on 460th Street about two miles northwest of Spencer.

Spencer Keith Hansen was driving a 2002 Dodge Dakota west on the Level B road shortly after midnight when he crossed Tyler Avenue, a gravel road, and his pickup went airborne, according to the O’Brien County Sheriff’s Office.

The front end of the vehicle gouged the roadway when it landed then rolled onto its top and skidded off the roadway into a row of trees.

Hansen received small scrapes to his left arm but was not transported for medical care.

He was charged with failure to maintain control of his vehicle, which was totaled.
