COLBY -- The driver of a semi truck was transported to Citizens Medical Center in Colby for possible injuries after his truck rolled on Interstate 70 Friday afternoon.

Daniel Palumbo, Mesquite, Texas, was westbound 2.2 miles from Colby when a gust of wind pushed his truck into the median. The driver over-corrected back onto the roadway, then lost control and the semi rolled one-quarter of a time on its passenger side. The truck, a 2013 Volvo, slid sideways into the eastbound lanes of I-70.

Palumbo, 62, was wearing his seat belt.
