Truck driver injured when semi rolls near Medina
The driver, Narantasatsral Sharavish, 54, Alexandria, Va., was eastbound when his semi crossed the median and traveled eastbound in the westbound lanes for a short distance, according to Sgt. Troy Hischer of the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
The truck then returned to the median, where it rolled onto the driver’s side and came to a rest, Hischer said in a report.
The semi-trailer blocked the westbound lanes of I-94, but traffic was able to pass at a reduced speed on the shoulder. Hischer said authorities hoped to have the lane clear by Sunday evening.
Sharavish, who wore a seat belt, was taken to Jamestown Hospital for treatment of his minor injuries. Traffic citations are pending, Hischer said.
