(Magnolia, Mn.)-- A single vehicle crash Saturday on Interstate 90 just east of the Magnolia exit injured a Spencer man and his son. 

The Minnesota State Patrol says 41-year-old Heath Richter of Spencer was driving a 2016 Chevrolet Silverado westbound on I-90 when he suffered a medical issue. Troopers say Richter then lost control of the vehicle which left the road and rolled. 

Richter and a passenger, nine-year-old Xavier Richter of Spencer, were both taken to Sanford Hospital in Luverne with non-life threatening injuries. 

The crash took place a little before 7:00 am.

The Nobles County Sheriff's Office assisted on the scene.
