Perham man injured in rollover
Perham Minnesota 222 2nd Avenue SE 56573

A Perham man was seriously injured Saturday in a one-vehicle rollover accident north of the city, the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office reported.

Kelly Amund Melgard, 30, was the lone person in the vehicle, a 2008 Ford F-250 pickup.

Rescuers were dispatched to the crash site on 450th Street, west of County Highway 51, just before 7 p.m., according to the sheriff's report.

Melgard was initially taken to Perham Health before being airlifted to a Fargo hospital.

An Essentia Health spokeswoman said Sunday that Melgard was not at that hospital. A spokewoman at Sanford Medical Center refused to say if Melgard had been admitted.

The accident is being investigated by the sheriff's department.
