Strong winds across the state today have caused five high-profile vehicles to tip over in the northeast region, and more have tipped over in the southeast region, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

It is the driver’s responsibility to maintain control of the vehicle, regardless of wind conditions, the patrol said. Travel is illegal where drivers cannot maintain control of the vehicle.

High-profile, long-load type and permitted overdimensional vehicles have restricted travel, the patrol said. North Dakota law restricts movement for these vehicles when wind or other conditions may cause the vehicle or attachment to swerve, whip, sway or fail to follow in the path of the towing vehicle.
