15 Hwy-40 Semi rollover 1Golden Valley Firefighters responded to a semi-truck rollover accident Wednesday morning at approximately 2:45 A.M. when an eastbound truck loaded with strawberries drifting into the median and apparently over-correcting to bring it back into the traffic lanes.  Both the driver and the occupant in the sleeper were uninjured in the accident which blocked an entire lane of traffic for several hours.  Fire officials warn drivers who drift onto the shoulder of the road to not over correct, which almost always results in a rollover accident, particularly at highway speeds.
