Underwood man hurt after car goes over guard rail, into lake

An Underwood man, LeShawn Anderson, age not listed, was injured in a one-vehicle accident near the intersection of Highway 35 and Lazy Loop, west of Phelps Mill and north of Underwood, on Sunday evening.

Anderson’s injuries were minor.

The Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office said Anderson lost control, striking a mailbox, county sign and cable junction box. The vehicle then left the road and entered a ditch, ran over a guard rail and came to a stop before entering West Lost Lake.

Evidence was collected for suspicion of alcohol being a factor in the accident. Charges were pending at press time.
