A late Monday evening accident has diverted traffic around a semi-rollover at the Nelson-Grand Forks County border on Highway 2. The accident happened just inside Nelson County.

A late Monday evening accident diverted traffic around a semi-rollover at the Nelson-Grand Forks County border on Highway 2. The accident happened just inside Nelson County. The semi rolled into the median at about 10:30pm Monday. Nelson County authorities did not know why the semi rolled.

A Nelson County Sheriff's Department dispatcher told WDAZ in the commotion of the accident last night that the semi was hauling gas; however, today said the tanker was actually full of anhydrous ammonia. Safe containment of the load is what prompted the detour. At least one person injured in the accident was taken to Altru Hospital by ambulence. Authorities secured the tank full of anhydrous safely.
