Colfax, ND (WDAY TV) - Strong winds lead to a rollover that injured two people and caused thousands of dollars in damages in Richland County early Sunday.

Authorities say Daryl Heupel of Fergus Falls was driving on County Road 1 south of Colfax when a gust of wind caused his empty trailer off the road. His truck and trailer then crossed the road, went into the ditch and rolled onto its side.

Heupel and a 9-year old passenger walked to a nearby residence to call for help. They were treated for minor injuries and released. Damage to the truck and trailer is estimated at 90-thousand dollars.
