"He just came out of the farmyard," he said of the Johanning Farms semi. "We couldn't stop" on the icy roads.

"I braced myself for the impact because I knew it was coming," he said.

Neither driver required medical attention. The pickup was extensively damaged.

The accident occurred just before 3 p.m. on Hubbard County 11, about a mile south of the Highway 87 intersection. The pickup was northbound.

The accident is under investigation by Hubbard County and the Minnesota State Patrol.
