STURGIS, S.D. – A semi-truck and trailer loaded with commercial livestock feed lost control while traveling I-90 at Sturgis early Wednesday morning, ending with the closure of Dolan Creek Road.
South Dakota Highway Patrol spokesman Tony Mangan says the 2014 Kenworth truck was traveling westbound when the driver lost control and entered the median. As the driver got the truck back on the roadway, the trailer struck a cable guardrail and rolled over the bridge overpass rail covering Dolan Creek Road. The trailer came to a final rest below the overpass on the median side with the truck remaining on the road above.
The westbound passing lane was closed for two hours.
Sturgis Public Works says Dolan Creek Road was closed to through traffic until Wednesday afternoon so the Department of Transporation could make inspections and any needed repairs of the bridge.
Mangan says the 21-year-old driver from Torrington, Wyoming was not wearing a seatbelt and was not hurt. Charges are pending.
