No one was injured in a one-vehicle accident 4:06 p.m. Monday on Interstate 94 at milepost 306, according to a release from the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
Benjamin Rau of West Fargo was driving a 2001 Kenworth truck east on Interstate 94 when the front right tire of the vehicle blew, causing Rau to lose control of the vehicle. He was wearing a seatbelt.
It swerved sharply to the right and left the roadway, entering the south ditch. He was able to steer the vehicle enough to keep it from overturning and tried to stop after entering the ditch.
The vehicle continued traveling through the ditch, going through a fence and vaulting over a gravel frontage road running parallel south of the Interstate. When the vehicle landed it hit a plow near a grove of trees that was parked on private property.
The truck received front end damage in the accident.
