Lisbon man drowns after truck is swept off highway


GWINNER - With torrential rain pouring outside, Jim Materi left work from the partially flooded Bobcat plant here just after 7 a.m. Thursday and started the slow drive home to Lisbon.

He called his brother Francis Materi on the drive and told him he was glad he was in his pickup truck, not his car, because water in the ditches along N.D. Highway 32 just north of here was starting to rise and splash onto the road.
