SEDAN, Minn. (AP) — A truck driver is recovering after his semi filled with sugar beets rolled over in western Minnesota.

Pope County sheriff's authorities say 39-year-old Candido Zelaya-Benitez of Willmar was pinned in the cab of the semi for nearly an hour as rescuers worked to free him Wednesday.

KSAX-TV of Alexandria reports Zelaya-Benitez was airlifted to St. Cloud Hospital. A nursing supervisor says he's in fair condition.
