LONG PRAIRIE, MN (KNSI) - The Todd County Sheriff's Office says a Burtrum man was killed over the weekend in a single vehicle accident near Long Lake.

The wreck happened around two o'clock Saturday morning. Sixty five year-old Dennis Kircher was driving a pickup that left County Road 104, went into the ditch, struck a driveway approach, and then became airborne and rolled.

Kircher was not wearing a seat belt and was dead at the scene. The sheriff's office says alcohol is believed to have been a factor in that crash.
