The truck came in contact with an unoccupied vehicle that was parked in the ditch for construction purposes. After hitting the parked vehicle, the truck came to a stop in the middle of the roadway.

The driver of the truck was transported to Aspirus Hospital for unknown injuries. Alcohol is believed not to be a factor in the accident.
