NEW LONDON -- A North Branch man was hurt in a crash in New London Friday morning.

The incident happened shortly after 8:00 a.m. at the intersection of Highway 23 and County Road 31.

The Minnesota State Patrol says 43-year-old Eric Elmstrand was driving his semi south on highway 23 when he swerved to avoid crashing into another vehicle that was stopped trying to make a left turn. The semi ran off the road, went into the west ditch and rolled.

Elmstrand was taken to the Rice Hopsital with non-life threatening injuries.
