Ronald A. Voltz of Mahnomen was traveling east on state Highway 200 when he came upon an eastbound John Deere tractor pulling a farm implement. The tractor did not have lights.

The left side of the 2001 Mack truck struck the right side of the tractor and the implement.

The semi entered the ditch and overturned onto its side in a field.

Voltz was taken to Mahnomen Health Center by ambulance with a possible broken leg.
