FERGUS FALLS, Minn.—The driver of a semi suffered non-life-threatening injuries Monday morning, June 26, when the contents of the semi's trailer shifted and the truck rolled onto its side while traveling on Interstate 94 in Otter Tail County.

The incident happened about 4 a.m.

According to a report released by the Minnesota State Patrol:

The semi was traveling westbound on the interstate when the truck went onto the shoulder of the highway and entered the center ditch.
