Driver arrested after rollover crash

On Thursday, June 25, at 8:55 p.m., the Renville County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call reporting a one-vehicle accident near the intersection of County Road 20 and 810th Avenue in Preston Lake Township. The accident was located about five miles northwest of Stewart.
Deputies on scene found a 1997 Chevrolet pickup on its roof while in a ditch. The driver of the vehicle was identified as Andrew Kyle Bergum, 35, of Hutchinson.  Bergum also had his three minor children with him in the vehicle at the time of the accident. The initial investigation revealed that Bergum had been driving southbound when he drove onto the shoulder of the road and over-corrected, causing the vehicle to roll into the ditch on the east side of the road. Neither Bergum nor his children were injured in the accident, although the children were transported to the Hutchinson Health Emergency Room as a precaution.
It is believed that alcohol was a factor in the accident and Bergum was arrested and taken to the Renville County Jail, where he is being held pending an initial court appearance. The accident remains under investigation by the Renville County Sheriff’s Office.
Assisting with the accident were the Buffalo Lake Ambulance Service, Buffalo Lake Police Department and the Minnesota State Patrol.
