McGREGOR — A 41-year-old Minneapolis man was injured in a crash Saturday, June 11, in Aitkin County.

The Minnesota State Patrol reported Aaron Dutch Schultz was eastbound in a 2008 Ford Escape on Highway 210 in McGregor just before 4 p.m. Saturday. The vehicle left the road and came to rest in the swamp median.

Schultz was transported to Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth for non-life-threatening injuries.

Schultz was not wearing a seat belt and alcohol was a factor in the crash, according to the state patrol.

The Aitkin County Sheriff’s Office assisted at the scene.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
