A 53-year-old man from Wadena received minor injuries in a crash Saturday evening west of town.

Richard John Nelson told an Otter Tail County sheriff's deputy he was backing up and his car caught the edge of the ditch and rolled over. The accident was a half mile east of Otter Tail County Highway 75 on 370th Street.


Nelson's 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix sustained more than $1,000 in damage, and his finger was injured in the crash. He was not taken to the hospital.
