Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) -- A truck rollover in north Moorhead injured a man and caused a mess on the road.

The accident happened around 12:30 at the intersection of Highway 22 and Highway 75. The driver was hauling sugar beet pulp, which spilled all over the road when the truck rolled.

It took several hours to clean up the scene. The Clay county sheriff's office believes the truck rolled because the driver took the corner too fast.

Deputy Scott Steffes with the Clay County Sheriff's Dept. says, "Mostly , ya know, what they have in their load, whether their load will shift or not. When they're driving and taking corners at the speeds they are, that load will shift and put them right on their side. That's what looks like what happened today."

The man was taken to Sanford hospital. His injuries are believed to be minor.
