Driver passes out after tooth extraction

A driver, late last week, escaped injury after hitting the ditch at the intersection of Highways 13 and 146, northeast of Perham near Big Pine Lake.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office said the driver, whose name has not been released, had become nauseated after a tooth extraction, later passing out in the car, which hit the ditch.

The victim was checked by members of the Perham Ambulance crew, and was found to be in good physical condition.

The vehicle was not damaged.
