The Minnesota State Patrol credited a rural Malmo, Minn., man for saving a life after a recent crash in Aitkin County. Trooper Kevin Skalsky reported that 21-year-old Kelly Stave from Verndale was driving eastbound on Minnesota Highway 18 a mile and a half west of Malmo when she swerved to miss a deer and crossed over the oncoming lane of traffic where she went into the ditch and crashed into a tree about 300 feet from the Roy Berg home.
