Investigation determined the 35-year-old driver ignored a stop sign, went off the road and hit a tree.

The driver was pinned inside of the truck and needed to be extricated. He was flown to North Memorial Health Hospital with “significant injuries,” the sheriff’s office said.

The crash is being investigated.
