An elderly man was extricated from his van after a rollover outside of Perham Thursday afternoon.

An Alexandria, Minn., man died Thursday following a crash on Highway 10 west of Perham, the Minnesota State Patrol said.

Roland J. Norling, 87, was eastbound on Highway 10 about 1 p.m. Thursday when his SUV drifted toward the shoulder of the road and he overcorrected, causing the vehicle to roll over several times, the State Patrol said.

Norling was extricated from the vehicle and taken first to Perham Hospital and later to Sanford Health in Fargo, where he died Thursday evening, according to the State Patrol.
