UPDATE: Chokio man injured in one-vehicle accident

Firefighters examine a SUV involved in a one-vehicle crash just before noon on Wednesday five miles west of Morris on Highway 28.

A Chokio man was injured just before noon Wednesday in a one-vehicle crash about five miles west of Morris on Highway 28.

Wesley Picht, 44, was traveling west on Highway 28 when he touched his brakes on a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer. The brakes apparently locked up, Picht lost control of the vehicle and it entered the ditch. The vehicle rolled before coming to a stop upright, said Stevens County Sheriff Randy Willis.

Picht was transported to Stevens Community Medical Center but it doesn't appear his injuries are serious, Willis said.
