The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating an accident between three semi-trailers in Redfield.

The accident happened at about 1 p.m. Wednesday on US Highways 281 and 212 right in front of the courthouse in Redfield.

One of the trucks was carrying a wind turbine blade, another was hauling a tank and the third vehicle was a farm truck.

Witnesses tell KSFY News the trailer carrying the blade swung across the road and was jumping as it struck the farm truck headed towards it.

The farm vehicle driver was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. No other injuries were reported.

The road was closed for a while. The Spink County Sheriff’s office was directing traffic in the meantime.
