A Vergas man was taken to the hospital Sunday after a tree fell on his leg, according to the Fergus Falls Daily Journal.

Todd Bunkowski, 53, was cutting wood near the intersection of Leek Lake Drive and Candor Hall Road shortly before 1 p.m. when a falling tree struck his leg, according to the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office.
