A Vergas woman, 71-year-old Dorothy Ross, was injured in a Fourth of July weekend accident near 415th Street and Highway 41, southwest of Vergas.

Ross lost control of her vehicle at 3:21 p.m. due to loose gravel on the side of the road.

According to the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office, Ross over-corrected and the vehicle slid sideways into the ditch.

She suffered minor cuts and bruises.
