Authorities say fatigue may have been a factor in a Hermantown crash that knocked the engine out of a vehicle.

According to the Hermantown Police Department, a 27-year-old Duluth man was traveling south on Haines Rd. when witnesses report he veered off the road, went through some yards, and knocked down a power line, before striking a tree and coming to a stop.

The impact with the tree was so hard, that the car's engine was knocked out and left laying under the tree. 

Police say the lone occupant was treated at the scene, but declined further care. 

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
