A 45-year-old man is dead after a single-vehicle crash in Central Minnesota.

Stearns County deputies were called to County Road 195 in Zion Township around 11:30 p.m. Saturday on a report of a crash.

Police say the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado was driving southbound when it left the road, rolled on its side, and landed in a ditch. The 45-year-old driver wasn’t wearing a seat belt and was ejected out of the passenger-side window, police say.

The man was sent to Paynesville Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The crash is still under investigation, and the man’s name hasn’t been released.
