Ada, MN (WDAY TV) -- Authorities say a 19 year old Ada, Minnesota man is alive this evening, because he had a seatbelt on this morning.

This is what his car ended up looking like after rolling several times. Deputies say the man fell asleep and drifted off the road.

He was the only one in the vehicle, and walked away with just a scratched finger.

Deputies on scene say accidents that look like this can be fatal.

Mike Trygg/Clay County Sheriffs Deputy, says, "so it's a real good argument as to why we're enforcing the seatbelt laws and things of that nature because it kept him inside the car and kept him safe."

The accident happened East of Georgetown on Highway 11 just after 9 this morning.
