Authorities say a motor vehicle crash has killed an Elbow Lake man.

The crash took place last week east of Erhard in Otter Tail County.

A passerby noticed a Chevy Silverado in the north ditch and called officers.  When officers arrived, they found the Silverado down a steep embankment.  The vehicle also appeared to have hit a tree. Inside the car was Nicholas Salo, 29, of Elbow Lake.  He reportedly died in the crash.

The incident remains under investigation.
