WADENA — A St. Cloud man was injured when he crashed an ATV in Bullard Township in Wadena County on Saturday, June 25.
The crash happened at about 5:10 p.m. south of Cottingham Park, according to a Wadena County Sheriff's Office news release.

The man, identified as Daniel Walters, age 69, of St. Cloud, was driving a red Polaris four-wheeler when he lost control, fell off and injured his left side.

The Wadena County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Minnesota State Patrol, Staples Ambulance and North Memorial Air Care. Alcohol or reckless driving are not believed to be factors in this incident.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
