Stearns County authorities say a Clearwater man was taken to St .Cloud Hospital after losing control of his car just outside Clearwater on 200 Street East about 4am Sunday.
40-year old Dale Ellis was driving west in Lynden Township when his car left the road on the north side, skidded across the road to the south side and slid into a ditch. The front end of the car struck a tree and overturned, striking another tree before landing on its roof.
Ellis was treated at the scene by Clearwater Rescue Squad members and taken to St .Cloud Hospital where his condition wasn’t immediately known.
