(Spencer)-- A Milford man escaped injury in a single vehicle crash Saturday in Clay county.

The Sheriff's Office says 27-year-old Phillip Baack was driving a 2007 Buick northbound in the 3200 mile of 240th Avenue and was nearing the curve to 320th Street when he lost control of the vehicle. It spun about 180 degrees and then briefly went airborne. Upon landing it struck the ditch with its front passenger side bumper. It continued northbound in the ditch for a short distance and came to rest facing south.

Baack was cited for failure to maintain control.

Authorities say fog was present at the time of the crash, which happened around 4:45 pm.
