The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about a crashed semi on Tuesday in Eden Lake Township, about five miles south of Richmond.
Just after 11:15 a.m. deputies arrived at the scene where 37-year-old Brian Luebke of New Germany was found with his semi-truck and trailer in the ditch. He was heading west on 185th Street and County Road 43.
Luebke attempted to pull to the side of the road to conduct a walk around vehicle inspection when the rear of the trailer started going into the ditch.
Luebke tried to correct himself, but was unable to. The semi-truck overturned into the ditch and landed on the driver’s side. He was able to get out of the vehicle by climbling through the passenger window.
Luebke sustained a few scrapes on his hands and declined medical treatment. A towing company removed the semi-truck and trailer out of the ditch.
