STEWARTVILLE -- A Stewartville man was hospitalized Tuesday evening after he was thrown from the ATV he was riding.
The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office was called about 6:20 p.m. to Sixth Street Southeast near its intersection with Seventh Avenue in Stewartville to a report of an ATV crash.
Larry Laures Jr., 47, was riding an ATV with a group of at least two others eastbound on Sixth Street Southeast when he lost control of the ATV and was thrown from it, according to Capt. Scott Behrns. Laures landed on his head.
He was taken to Mayo Clinic Hospital-Saint Marys for his injuries. Deputies got a search warrant for a blood sample from Laures to determine if alcohol was a factor in the crash, Behrns said.
He was listed in fair condition Wednesday morning, according to a Mayo Clinic spokeswoman.
