Oil tanker rollover temporarily shuts down Highway 200

Both lanes of Highway 200 near mile 92 were closed temporarily Monday afternoon while crews worked to move an oil tanker that had rolled into a ditch.

The driver of the truck, Ray Waldner of Dickinson, was uninjured.

Ray Waldner, of Dickinson, was driving east just outside of Killdeer when a car in front him went to make a left-hand turn from the highway onto a northbound road. He tried to drive to the right of the turning car, but his truck hit a snowy patch of grass on the shoulder and slid into the ditch, where it came to rest on its right side.

Waldner, 37, was uninjured.

Some crews will remain to clean up the scene and a small amount of oil that leaked into the ditch.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol is currently investigating the accident.
