NEAR EDINBURG, ND (WDAZ-TV) - A 28-year-old man from Crystal, ND, was airlifted after crashing into a house near Edinburg, ND, on Sunday night.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Casey Otoole was eastbound on County Road 9 headed toward Edinburg in a 2004 Chevrolet truck at about 8:15 p.m. Otoole's truck went off the roadway into the south ditch and driven a short distance.

Otoole went back onto the road and into the north ditch, then through a church parking lot, beyond the north ditch and crashed into the house at 12869 County Road 9, causing what the Patrol reports as "severe damage" to the home. The truck was totaled.

The owner of the home was there at the time but was not injured.

After being extricated, the man was airlifted to Sanford Health in Fargo. He was no longer a patient there Tuesday afternoon.
