Fatality in Gully Area Accident 15 Mar 17

A Gonvik area man died early yesterday morning in an accident on Highway #92 in Polk County.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, 31 year old Kyle Rouland – the driver of a 2006 Chrysler 300 – died in the crash, reported just before 12:30am Tuesday, east of Gully, in Gully Township.

State Troopers say the car was westbound when it went off the roadway to the right, rolling and coming to rest on its tires. Officers report road conditions as dry at the time of the accident.

Rouland was taken to Essentia Hospital in Fosston, but was unable to recover from his injuries.

Officers say they don’t know if he was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident; protective airbags in the vehicle *did* deploy.
