WING, N.D. — Authorities say a semi-trailer hauling milk crashed in central North Dakota over the weekend and spilled nearly 8,000 gallons of milk.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the truck went in the ditch about 4 miles south of Wing about 10 a.m. Sunday, March 14. The cab overturned and came to rest on its wheels, while the trailer came to rest on its side.
The truck driver, Orlando Nieves, 38, of Granville, was taken to a Bismarck hospital with serious injuries, the patrol said. Nieves was working for White Rock Express, of Towner.
Nearly all the milk in the tanker spilled. No cleanup was required on the roadway.
