The victim was Oren Hazelton, 88, a resident of Twin Cities suburb of Eagan.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office said Hazelton was driving a 1994 Jeep Cherokee SUV when the vehicle rolled over at 11:42 a.m. A possible medical issue may have been a contributing factor in the crash. 

Hazelton was ejected from the vehicle and, according to the sheriff’s office, was not wearing a seat belt. 

He was the lone occupant of the vehicle.
