Esko man injured in ATV crash

The St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office on Sunday said it appears speed and alcohol were factors in an ATV crash in Alborn Township. Daniel James Doran of Esko, 49, received “significant” injuries that were not life-threatening. The crash, which didn’t involve any other vehicles or people, was reported at 12:41 a.m. from the 6800 block of County Highway 47 in Alborn Township. Doran was driving a side-by-side ATV.

Doran was treated by first responders on scene and ultimately flown by Life Link to Essentia Health Duluth to be treated for his injuries.

The sheriff’s office was assisted by the Alborn Fire Department, St. Louis County Rescue Squad, Meadowlands Ambulance and Life Link medical air service.
