Man Hospitalized After Tractor Trailer Rollover Wreck in North Dakota

The 67-year-old driver of a tractor trailer was hospitalized after a crash on Highway 200 in Wells County, North Dakota, on June 13.

The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead reports that the accident occurred when the semi, being driven by David Pinske of Gary, Minnesota, failed to negotiate a curve on the westbound side of the roadway about two miles west of Hurdsfield.

According to officials, the big rig then began to veer off the highway. The truck then jackknifed as Pinske attempted to gain control of the vehicle. The wreck partially blocked the roadway and the northside of the ditch for a short time.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol told the news agency that it's unclear exactly how fast Pinske was driving at the time of the accident. They are also not aware if he was wearing his seatbealt at the time of the crash.

Pinske was transported to a local hospital and then airlifted to Trinity Hospital in Mi-not with unknown injuries. He reportedly remains in stable condition.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that four people were killed as the result of motor vehicle accidents in Wells County, North Dakota, in 2009.
