A Perham man was injured late Saturday night in a one-vehicle crash.

James Robert Loerzel, 34, suffered non-life-threatening injuries, according to a Minnesota State Patrol report. Loerzel was driving a 2004 Jeep Liberty eastbound on Highway 210, milepost 39, west of Underwood at a high rate of speed, according to the report. He lost control on the wet road and rolled into the north ditch.

Loerzel was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle, according to the report. Alcohol was a factor in the crash, according to the report.
