(WDAZ-TV) - A Drayton, ND, man was rescued early Tuesday morning, nearly eight hours after crashing his vehicle near Lake Bronson State Park in Kittson County.

30-year-old Gregory Renstrom was driving on a curve along Kittson County Highway 10.

The vehicle launched about 100 yards into a densely wooded area shortly before midnight last night.

Renstrom called 911 twice, but lost cell phone service.

All five Kittson County fire departments were dispatched to the area.

Border Patrol also sent a helicopter to aid in the search.

Renstrom was finally found walking along a road at about 7:30 a.m. by a woman who was driving to work.

Renstrom was treated and released from Kittson Memorial Hospital in Hallock.
