A semi-truck overturned Saturday evening when the driver tried to merge too fast onto I-90/15 eastbound as he was coming off the I-15 interchange just east of Butte.
No other driver was involved in the accident. The driver of the semi-truck suffered minor injuries and was transported to St. James Hospital, said Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Jade Shope.
The accident happened around 8:30 p.m. Saturday. The driver was cited for careless driving. The driver was wearing his seat belt. Neither drugs nor alcohol were involved in the crash, Shope said.
The truck overturned onto the shoulder. It took about five hours to get the semi-truck removed. The work was complete at about 3 a.m.
