On Tuesday, authorities identified the man as 25-year-old Scott Mead of Pequot Lakes.

Authorities say shortly after 3:30 Sunday morning they received a report of a "serious motor vehicle crash" on 11th Ave SW (County Road #36) in Sylvan Township, rural Brainerd MN.  

Authorities responded to find a 2005 GMC Yukon that had left the roadway. The vehicle had rolled several times, striking trees and power lines.

Authorities say Mead was driving the vehicle. He and a 21-year-old Motley woman were ejected from the vehicle.

Life saving efforts were attempted, but Mead was pronounced dead on scene. The 21-year-old woman was treated on scene and transported to a Brainerd Hospital with "serious, but not life-threatening injuries."

An autopsy is scheduled with the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office and the crash remains under investigation.

Assisting on scene were Pillager Fire and Rescue, North Memorial Ambulance, North Memorial Air Care, Lake Shore Police Department and Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office.
