A 30-year-old Battle Lake man suffered cuts to his face and pain in his shoulder after flipping his four-wheeler over on top of himself on Friday, a report by the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office states.

According to the report, Andrew Duane Johnson accelerated hard while exiting a machine shed, causing his 2006 Polaris Sportsman four-wheel ATV to flip over backwards.

Johnson was conscious and alert when Battle Lake First Responders arrived. He was transported by Ashby Ambulance to Lake Region Hospital in Fergus Falls, where he was treated and released.

Estimated damages to the ATV totaled at least $1,000.
