1:29 a.m.

Peters was injured in the crash but was conscious and alert when law enforcement arrived, the TCSO said. He was taken by Bertha Ambulance to Tri-County Hospital in Wadena where he was treated for his injuries.

The accident is still under investigation and the Todd County Attorney's Office is reviewing the report.
