A semi truck driver was killed Monday evening after he lost control of his rig on Interstate 90 near Nodine.

The 55-year-old male was eastbound near the Nodine exit and milemarker 263 about 5:35 p.m. when he lost control of his semi, crashed through a boundary fence in the ditch and ended up partially blocking County Road 104, according to the Minnesota State Patrol and Winona County Sheriff’s Department responders.

Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand said witnesses were first on the scene and were forced to break a window on the truck in order to rescue the driver and perform CPR. However, the man died by the time responders, including Gundersen Lutheran’s Medlink Air helicopter, arrived at the scene.

Brand said a medical emergency appeared to have caused the crash and that there will be an autopsy as part of the investigation. Because family had not yet been informed and the investigation was still open, he did not provide more details Monday night, including the name of the man. No other people or vehicles were involved in the crash.
