DASSEL -- A Dassel man is seriously hurt after he flipped his ATV Wednesday.

The incident happened along 745th Avenue, South of Highway 12 in Dassel Township.

The Meeker County Sheriff Brian Cruze says 48-year-old Daniel Miller was heading north on 745th Avenue, when he lost control of his ATV causing it to flip over.

He was taken to Meeker Memorial Hospital and then air lifted to Hennepin County Medical Center with serious injuries.

Cruze says Miller was not wearing a helmet and it is believed alcohol played a factor in the crash.

The incident remains under investigation.
