CASS COUNTY, N.D. – A West Fargo man had to be extricated from his pickup truck Thursday, Aug. 2, after the truck veered off Interstate 29, hit a parked car and crossed several lanes of traffic, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

John Milligan, 62, was 4 miles north of Fargo on I-29 when his northbound 2016 GMC Sierra strayed from the road about 6:30 p.m., and slammed into a 2002 Toyota Corolla parked on the shoulder, the patrol said.

Both vehicles crossed the northbound lanes and stopped in the median, the patrol said.

The Toyota was unoccupied, and Milligan was treated at Sanford Medical Center for injuries that were not life-threatening. He was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol said.

Milligan’s truck has extensive front-end damage, and the Toyota is totalled. The crash is under investigation.
