Samuel Aschnewitz, 25, of Fergus Falls, escaped injury last Monday during a single-vehicle accident on Highway 3, southeast of Pelican Rapids.

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.
