Three hurt in rural Richville rollover

Three people were injured in a traffic accident near Richville on Sunday.

According to the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office, the crash occurred on 390th Ave. west of Richville at about 10:20 a.m.

A 1989 Ford F-150 pickup truck, driven by 19-year-old Jerry Bruce Barnes of New York Mills, entered a curve on the roadway at too high a rate of speed, the sheriff’s office said. Barnes lost control of the truck on the gravel road, and the vehicle entered the right ditch, where it rolled.

Two unidentified occupants were taken to Perham Health with non-life threatening injuries. A third occupant did not require hospitalization.

The sheriff’s office said alcohol appeared to be a factor in the crash. Charges were expected to be filed.
