It happened Wednesday afternoon on Highway 10, east of Durand.  The Pepin County Sheriff's Department says the driver of a pickup fell out.  The truck was pulling a trailer, which may have run over the man.  The truck skidded off the road after he fell out.  Three other people were in the truck at the time.  They were not hurt.  The driver has head and upper body injuries.  He was flown to Mayo Clinic Health System Eau Claire.

His name has not been released, but the sheriff's department says the driver is from Minnesota and is 21 years old.  No more information was released about the investigation, so there's no explanation as to why he fell out.
