EMERADO, N.D. (AP) -- A semitrailer driver was cited after the farm equipment he was hauling crashed into the underside of a U.S. Highway 2 bridge near this northeastern North Dakota town.

The crash damaged the road and caused $30,000 worth of damage to the machinery, the Highway Patrol said. Arms on the farm equipment broke off, and one skidded into a light pole, authorities said.

Vern Hodgson, 64, of Warren, Minn., was not hurt. He was cited Thursday afternoon for not having an oversized load permit and other commercial vehicle violations, the patrol said.
