The incident took place about 3 p.m., north of 34805 County Highway 3.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Department said Aschnewitz was heading up a hill and taking a right curve when his vehicle went off the left side of the road.

The vehicle landed in a small ditch, struck a barbwire fence and knocked down a fence post.

Aschnewitz told officers his vehicle had fishtailed a couple of times after he overcorrected. He was diving a 2006 Pontiac G-6.
