(KNSI) - A man was arrested for DWI after the Stearns County Sheriff's Office says he rolled his truck into a ditch.

Around 9:45 p.m. Friday, the sheriff's office received a 911 call saying a truck was in a ditch along County Road 154 near 207th Avenue in Albany Township.

The sheriff's office says 65-year-old Gary John Harren, from Avon, left the roadway and went into the northbound ditch, overcorrected and crashed in the southbound ditch.

The truck rolled and was tipped over on the driver's side when deputies arrived on scene.

Harren had to be removed from the vehicle and was taken to St. Cloud Hospital with minor injuries.

He was later booked into the Stearns County Jail for fourth degree DWI.

The crash remains under investigation.

Albany police, Albany Fire and Rescue and Gold Cross assisted the sheriff's office.
