Browerville driver slides into tree

A Browerville woman went off a frosty Highway 71 on Friday morning in Todd County, sliding into the ditch and striking a tree.

A Minnesota State Patrol report said Roberta Jean Schroeder, 59, was injured but did not need to be taken in for treatment.  

The crash happened about a mile and a half south of Browerville just before 6:29 a.m. Friday, Dec. 8.

Schroeder was wearing a seatbelt and the airbags in her 2014 Ford Focus did not deploy.

The road conditions were reported as icy, with a light covering of frost, causing the southbound vehicle to slide off the road. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.
