The driver, whose identity has not been released, was traveling on Hwy 10, about two miles outside of Perham, at around 1 p.m. when his van rolled, according to the Perham Fire Department.

The man was transported to Perham Health for extensive injuries to his left arm.

Perham firefighters extricated the man from the van, which took the crew roughly 8 to 10 minutes, according to Fire Chief Mark Schmidt.

"We're thankful again for the people who donate for that equipment that allows us to get people out when they're in need," he said.

The fire department crew was out there for around 45 minutes.

Perham EMS, the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office and the Minnesota State Patrol also assisted at the scene.
