Perham, MN (WDAY TV) - A Grand Forks boy is still in the hospital tonight after a rollover ATV accident near Perham. The Otter Tail County Sheriff's office says the boy suffered a severe laceration to his face and needed to be airlifted to Sanford, but his grandma says he is doing okay.

Authorities say 34 year-old Jeffery Rost was giving his 5 and 3 year-old sons a ride shortly after seven tonight. They were driving up an embankment when the rear tires dropped into a depression and the ATV flipped over backward onto all three occupants.

The sheriff's office says neither the father, nor either boy was wearing a helmet.
