Willmar man injured in crash near Browns Valley

BROWNS VALLEY – A Willmar man was injured in a one-vehicle crash about 1:30 p.m. Monday in Big Stone County.

According to a State Patrol report, Diego Xiquin Xorxe, 30, was northbound near Browns Valley on state Highway 7 in a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado pickup when it left the roadway, vaulted off of an approach and rolled.

He was transported to a hospital in Fargo, North Dakota, for what the Patrol described as non-life-threatening injuries. He was wearing a seat belt and the airbag deployed.

Roads were dry at the time, and alcohol is believed to be a factor.

The Big Stone County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the scene.
