The Faribault County Sheriff says the roadway showed signs of “burnouts and donuts” prior to a crash that left two men injured south of Minnesota Lake Monday night.

Sheriff’s deputies responded at 9:37 p.m. to a report of a single-vehicle rollover with a trapped occupant on County Rd 21, just north of 230th St.

An investigation of the crash showed a Chevy pickup was northbound on County Rd 21 when it lost control and veered into a ditch just north of 230th St.  The pickup came to rest on the driver’s side just inside the cornfield.

A press release from Deputy Chris Albers says black marks were discovered on the road, showing that the truck was doing burnouts and donuts on the roadway.

Tyler Michael Fields, 30, of rural Minnesota Lake, was identified as the driver of the truck.  Fields was extricated out of the vehicle and airlifted from the scene with unknown injuries.

A passenger, John Wolfe Crowley Rosenberg, 21, of Welcome, was examined on scene and treated for minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
