VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) — An Oriska man was taken to a Fargo hospital after his car hit an overturned semitrailer blocking Interstate 94 east of Valley City and then was struck by a pickup truck.

The Highway Patrol says the crash started shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday when the semitrailer drifted onto the median and the driver overcorrected on the slick road.

The semitrailer and pickup drivers were treated at a Valley City hospital and released.

The patrol says the semitrailer was hauling batteries and paint thinner. The cargo did not spill, but it took workers several hours to unload the material.
