The sheriff’s office says the accident happened just after 10 a.m. in Lisbon Township, just north of County Road 5 on 400th Street.

Richard Jurgenson, of Montevideo, needed to be extricated from the truck, and was eventually airlifted with severe injuries to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale.

The spill was cleaned up and the sheriff’s office is investigating.
