Fairmont Man Injured in Semi Rollover North of Winnebago

A Fairmont man was injured Wednesday afternoon in a semi rollover north of Winnebago.

According to the Faribault County Sheriff’s Office at approximately 1:53pm at 240th St, west of 325th Ave, a 2015 Mack semi pulling a side dump trailer filled with gravel driven by 24 year old Jonathan Michael Benny was westbound on 240th St when the semi and trailer veered onto the shoulder.

Benny attempted to return the semi to the roadway, but it overcorrected.  The rig went into the ditch, struck a field approach and rolled onto its side.  Benny was able to get out of the cab by breaking out a rear window.

Benny suffered minor injuries and was transported by Winnebago Ambulance to Mayo Clinic – Fairmont.

Assisting at the scene were the Winnebago Fire Department, Blue Earth Fire Department and Minnesota State Patrol.

The crash remains under investigation by the Faribault County Sheriff’s Office with assistance from the Minnesota State Patrol – Commercial Vehicle Section.
