A semi driver hit the South Heart exit with his cargo Thursday.

Thomas Basler, Cheyenne, Wyo., was driving west on Interstate 94 in a 1997 Kenworth Truck with a flatbed trailer when he failed to turn onto Exit 51 north of South Heart, according to the North Dakota State Highway. The 54-year-old was hauling two oversized frac tanks from Stanley to Ludlow, S.D. The tanks struck the overpass, which caused minor damage to the bridge and tanks.

Basler was given a permitted route which instructed him to turn onto the exit to avoid the overhead, according to the release. He was not injured and was cited for violating the terms and conditions of the oversize permit.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation inspected the overhead Thursday. Officials said in the release there was no safety concern for the traveling public.
