Alcohol a factor in one-vehicle accident in Ottertail

An 18-year-old sustained minor injuries in an alcohol-related one-vehicle accident in Ottertail Saturday morning.

Brady Muchow, of Battle Lake, failed to negotiate a sharp curve on Cozy Oak Drive just south of Ottertail, putting his Chevrolet S-10 Blazer into the ditch and striking several trees, according to the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office.

Muchow suffered minor cuts to his face and head. He was transported to Perham Health for evaluation, but refused medical attention, reports the Sheriff's Office.

The Blazer was badly damaged and towed from the scene. Muchow was the only person in the vehicle.

Alcohol was a factor in the incident, and DWI charges are pending.
