A Crookston man was injured Saturday afternoon when his semi-trailer jackknifed and flipped near St. Michael, N.D., the North Dakota Highway Patrol reported.

Shortly before 3 p.m., Kevin Blow, 50, drove his 2002 Mack semi out of a pit with a load of dirt in the side-dump trailer on his way to a dump site near Fort Totten, N.D.

According to the Patrol, Blow failed to negotiate a curve on state Highway 20 about seven miles north of St. Michael and started to enter the east ditch when he overcorrected and jackknifed the semi. The trailer flipped, causing the semi to flip and roll onto its roof before coming to a stop on the highway shoulder.

Blow was taken to Mercy Hospital in Devils Lake, where he was treated and released.

He was cited for care required.
