MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A Wisconsin man had to be extricated from a vehicle in southeastern Minnesota last night after it rolled, trapping his leg in the car’s sunroof, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Authorities say the crash happened at about 8:29 p.m. Monday on Highway 16 and County Road 25 in Houston County. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a vehicle being driven by a 77-year-old man from Coon Valley, Wis., was heading westbound on Highway 16 from Hokah heading towards Houston when it lost control and rolled into the north ditch.
