FERGUS FALLS, MINN. (KFGO-AM) -- The State Patrol says a Melrose, Minnesota man fell asleep before he drove his pickup pulling a trailer into the Otter Tail River on the west edge of Fergus Falls.

The pickup driven by 83 year-old Victor Tschida left I-94 just south of the highway 210 interchange at around noon Monday.

The fire department rescued Tschida and his 79 year-old wife from the high water and swift current. They were treated for minor injuries at Lake Region Hospital.
