A Morgan man was slightly injured while trying to avoid a collision in Redwood County Tuesday.

According to the Redwood County Sheriff’s Office, at about 5:40 p.m. on June 28, Daniel James Reel, age 20, of Morgan, was driving a 1993 Ford pickup northbound on County Road 2. Near the intersection with County Road 11, Reel passed two vehicles that were about to turn left. To avoid crashing into either vehicle, Reel went into the ditch at the northwest corner of the intersection.

Reel was transported to the hospital in Redwood Falls after telling emergency crews he was experiencing back pain.
