1 person injured in rollover accident


One person was injured in a one-vehicle rollover accident Wednesday morning at state Highway 31 and County Road 36.

Washington County sheriff's deputies, Arlington, Kennard and Bennington rescue responded to the crash just after 8 a.m.

Kennard Fire Chief Jason Lorsch said a pickup truck with one male driver was headed north on state Highway 31, veered off the road, hit a power pole and rolled the vehicle. The driver was ejected. Lorsch said the driver was alert and was transported by medical helicopter.

"We don't know if he fell asleep or there was a medical issue," Detective Sgt. Brian Beckman said. "We don't know if speed or alcohol were a factor yet."

The road was closed temporarily. The accident remains under investigation.
