A Wadena was involved in a one-vehicle accident Tuesday morning when his semi left the road to avoid a deer on Minnesota Highway 11, east of Baudette.


A report by the Minnesota State Patrol said Brent A. McManigle, 33, was traveling west at 7:32 a.m. in a 2010 Freightliner semi when he swerved to avoid hitting a deer.

McManigle lost control of the vehicle, which went into the north ditch, striking an approach and a tree trunk.

It glanced of a power pole and hit an embankment of a ditch at an intersecting road before coming to a stop, according to the report.

The semi had severe front end damage, and McManigle was treated for minor injuries and released. The Lake of the Woods Sheriff's Office assisted on the scene.
