ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- A St. Stephen man was taken to St. Cloud Hospital on Sunday morning after crashing an all-terrain vehicle while attempting to flee Stearns County Sheriff's deputies.

Brian Donald Klein was going 54 mph in a 30-mph zone, driving recklessly and driving an ATV on a county road just before 1 a.m., according to the Stearns County Sheriff's Office.

The 31-year-old turned into his driveway from Stearns County Road 2 in St. Stephen and drove off a retaining wall about 5 feet high, the report said. Klein was pinned by the ATV.

Deputies requested assistance from other emergency personnel. Klein was listed in critical condition at the hospital on Sunday.

The accident is still under investigation although alcohol is believed to be a factor, according to the Stearns County Sheriff's Office.
