THOMPSON, N.D.-The North Dakota Highway Patrol identified the driver who was seriously injured when his truck went off the road and spilled about 6,000 gallons of hot tar in Grand Forks County Wednesday.

The driver, Bradley Jackson, 21, of Woodlands, Man., was transported to Altru Hospital for what the Highway Patrol said were life-threatening injuries.

Jackson was driving east on County Road 7 about 1:30 p.m. in a 2011 Peterbilt truck with a tanker trailer when the vehicle swerved to the right, the release said. The truck landed on its side and spilled tar, according to the release.

The accident closed the road for six-and-a-half hours, the release said. An emergency alert was sent to area cellphones because the road connects to Minnesota and leads into Crookston.
