The driver, 28-year-old Thomas Caspers II of Vergas, was extricated by rescue workers and taken to Perham Health. He was later airlifted to Sanford Health in Fargo.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office said Caspers was driving southbound when his vehicle ran off the roadway at a curve in the road. He was driving a 2013 Lexus ES350 passenger car which traveled back on the roadway but then overturned multiple times and came to rest upside down.

Responding to the scene of the accident were the Dent Fire and Rescue Squad, Perham Ambulance crew, Perham Fire Department and sheriff’s deputies.

The crash remains under investigation.
