Driver treated for injuries after semi accident

Posted by wlpo on September 1, 2010

An early morning semi accident near Marseilles on Interstate 80 left the driver being treated for injuries.

Police say Michael Peterson of Colfax was heading east near the Marseilles exit Wednesday morning when he left the road in a construction area with a shoulder drop off.  Police say the uneven shoulder caused the truck to go into the ditch before rolling over.

Peterson was taken to Morris Hospital.

The right lane of traffic was closed for a couple of hours, but reopened by 9am.
