A Grand Forks man was seriously injured Tuesday night in a one-car roll-over accident near Lakota, N.D.

According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the man, who has been identified as Nathan Schatz, 34, was traveling east on U.S. Highway 2 approximately 1.5 miles east of Lakota at about 10:45 p.m. Tuesday when the accident occurred.

According to the report, he was driving a 2007 Nissan Titan pickup, when the vehicle entered the median. As he attempted to steer back onto the roadway, the vehicle turned sideways, tipped and rolled several times in the median.

The vehicle came to rest on a vehicle crossover, sitting on the driver's side, the Highway Patrol report said.

The driver was ejected and was found in the ditch just to the east of the vehicle.
