An 87-year-old Alexandria man died after a one-vehicle rollover near Perham in Otter Tail County Thursday.

Roland J. Norling was driving a 1996 Ford Explorer on Highway 10 shortly after 1 p.m. when the vehicle drifted off to the medial shoulder, according to the State Patrol. He over-corrected and the vehicle ended up rolling several times.

Norling, who was wearing a seat belt, was extricated from the Explorer and taken to the hospital in Perham. He was later air-lifted to Fargo and died at about 5 p.m. Thursday at Sanford Health Hospital.
