No one injured in Barnes County truck accident

An accident involving two semis resulted in an Interstate 94 lane closure Thursday afternoon, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The accident occurred at 4:40 p.m. about 6 miles west of Valley City.

Jacob Sperr, 21, Donnelly, Minn., was driving a 1994 Kenworth truck pulling a grain hopper trailer when it struck the rear of a 2000 Volvo truck pulling a flatbed trailer driven by Raymond Hilgers, 52, Barnesville, Minn.

The Kenworth and trailer came to rest on the eastbound shoulder partially blocking the right lane of eastbound Interstate 94 for about 45 minutes while the vehicles were removed.

Sperr was cited for following another vehicle too closely. The drivers refused medical treatment at the scene.
