A Pine River man had to be taken to the hospital after he exited his crashed vehicle, then was hit by a semi driver.
The 42-year-old was behind the wheel on Interstate 35 just southwest of Duluth Wednesday morning when he got into a crash, according to the State patrol. After the wreck, he got out of his car — and around 6:39 a.m. was struck by a semi driver passing by on I-35.
The man was taken to St. Mary's hospital, though fortunately only had non-life-threatening injuries, according to the incident report.
The semi driver was unhurt, and the State Patrol says alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
The report does not detail the preceding crash that caused the man to get out of his car.
