Man found 75 feet from vehicle after rollover crash in northern Minnesota

Investigators have worked to piece together what happened.

Authorities arrived to the scene of a one-vehicle crash in northern Minnesota to find a man dead, lying 75 feet away from the vehicle in a field. 

The Wadena County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to County Road 26 and 160th Street in Bullard's Township just before 10:30 p.m. Monday, after receiving a 911 call about a one-vehicle rollover. 

The car, a 2002 Nissan Maxima, was on its drive side, on the north end of 160th Street.

Approximately 75 feet to the east of the car, deputies located a man laying in the adjacent field. 

Investigators believe the man was driving, and had been wearing his seat belt at the time of the wreck. But after the rollover, he exited the car only to collapse in the spot where he was later found.

First responders performed first aid, but he was pronounced dead a the scene. The sheriff's office has not identified him, pending notification of his family.
