A 38-year-old woman is in a life-threatening condition after the ATV she was driving rolled down a hill in Otter Tail County. The incident happened on Wintergreen Road in Perham, and left the woman with serious injuries that required her to be airlifted from the scene to Sanford Hospital in Fargo. The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office said the victim was unconscious but breathing when they arrived at the scene after receiving a 911 call just before 5 p.m. Tuesday. One of the woman's close friends on Facebook described her as being "stable" but notes she has a "long road ahead."
The invasive insect Emerald Ash Borer has been found in two more Minnesota counties. Professional tree service companies detected EAB in both Mille Lacs and Benton Counties. That brings the total number of Minnesota counties with Emerald Ash Borer to 44. The Mille Lacs infestation was discovered along a set of power lines in Milaca. The Benton County infestation was found in a St. Cloud neighborhood. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture has enacted an emergency quarantine of any firewood or ash material to prevent the movement of the invasive pests. EAB was first discovered in Minnesota in 2009. The insect larvae kill ash trees by tunneling under the bark and feeding on the part of the tree that moves nutrients up and down the trunk.
