ST. STEPHEN — Deputies attempted to stop a driver of an ATV on County Road 2 in St. Stephen at 12:55 a.m. this morning for speeding, driving recklessly, and driving an ATV on a county road.

31-year-old Brian Donald Klein was the driver of the ATV and was going 54 mph in a 30 mph zone.

Klein then pulled into his drive-way and went around the side of a detached garage.

When Deputies checked the area they found that Klein had driven the ATV off a retaining wall that was approximately five feet high.

Klein was found with obvious injuries and pinned by the ATV.

Deputies began administering first aid until the St. Stephen Fire Department responded and provided further medical care as they awaited the arrival of Gold Cross Ambulance.

Klein was then transported to the St. Cloud Hospital Emergency Room.

The accident remains under investigation and it is believed alcohol is the contributing factor in the accident.
