A Gary man was injured Monday when the grain truck he was driving left the roadway and rolled over on Highway 200 in Mahnomen County.

Michael Ronald Pinske, 51, of Gary was taken to the Mahnomen hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the State Patrol.

He was eastbound on Highway 200 in a 1977 Mack grain truck when the truck crossed over the westbound lanes and went into the ditch. The Mack truck hit a sign and an approach before it rolled onto its roof and came to final rest.

The crash was reported at 3:53 p.m. on dry pavement at 100th Avenue in Marsh Creek Township. He was not wearing a seatbelt and alcohol was a factor in the crash, according to the State Patrol.

The Mahnomen County Sheriff's Office, White Earth Police Department, Mahnomen and Waubun fire departments and Mahnomen EMS assisted the State Patrol.
