ROYALTON — A one-car rollover west of Royalton in Morrison County Saturday, July 23, left a 52-year-old Royalton man with life-threatening injuries.

Alan David Schumer was eastbound on Highway 10 near 68th Street in Bellevue Township about 5:43 p.m. when his 1998 Buick LeSabre went into a ditch, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

According to the crash report, Schumer then made contact with the west shoulder, turned sharply and traveled across both lanes before entering the median for the second time and the car rolled multiple times before coming to a rest on its roof in the middle of eastbound Highway 10.

Schumer was wearing a seat belt and taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul.

Mayo Ambulance, the Royalton Fire Department and the Morrison County Sheriff's Office assisted at the crash site.

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.
