A Litchfield man was taken to a Bemidji hospital Thursday noon following an ATV rollover north of Park Rapids.

Brian Kormanik, 25, was riding in the ditch off Hammock Trail when authorities said a sign he was carrying in the front basket of the Arctic Cat four-wheeler was caught by the wind and blew into his face.


He instinctively reached to cover his face and lost control of the ATV, rolling it, said Hubbard County Chief Deputy Scott Parks.
