Hawley man dies in one-vehicle accident in Becker County

A 32-year-old Hawley man died in a one-vehicle accident Sunday on Becker County 15 south of U.S. Highway 10.

Becker County Sheriff Tim Gordon said because of the relatively minor damage to the man's vehicle, an autopsy is being conducted to determine if there is another possible cause of death.

The man's identification is being withheld pending notification of relatives.

The man was from the Hawley area, Gordon said.

The vehicle was discovered shortly before 1:30 p.m. in a lowland area.

The driver was unresponsive; resuscitation efforts were not successful and the man was later pronounced dead at St. Mary's Innovis Hospital in Detroit Lakes.

The accident remains under investigation.
