The Minnesota State Patrol crash report says 60-year-old Martin D. Plaisted was driving a 2007 Can-Am Outlander ATV south in the east ditch of Hwy. 65 near County Road 8 when he hit an "elevated part" of the ditch and crashed just after 4 p.m.

Plaisted became trapped underneath the ATV, which was submerged in water, the State Patrol said. He died at the scene. 

It's one of three fatal ATV crashes in Minnesota over the past few days, with a woman dying in a crash Saturday about 40 miles southwest of Duluth, and a boy suffering fatal injuries in an ATV accident in northwest Minnesota on Thursday.
