ELK RIVER, MINN. – A 19-year-old man from Elk River was killed in a car accident on 610th Avenue north of County Highway 76 in Otter Tail County Friday night.

According to a press release from the Otter Tail County Sheriff’s Office, investigators believe the driver – the only person in the car – was traveling south on 610th Avenue when he fishtailed on the gravel road and rolled the 1997 four-door Saturn he was driving.

The 19-year-old was then ejected from the car, and he suffered fatal injuries, Deputy Jim Stewart said in the news release. The release doesn’t indicate if the driver was wearing a seatbelt.

Officers were called out to the accident site about three miles north of Bluffton just before 11 p.m., and it is still under investigation, according to the news release.

Authorities said they plan to release the driver’s name Sunday.
