UPDATE: Authorities say 48-year-old Birkha Yakha of Grand Forks was heading north on I-29 when he lost control on the icy road.

The semi and attached empty hopper trailer then tipped and went into the median, damaging a guard rail.

Inside lanes were closed in each direction for more than two hours while crews cleaned up the scene.

The driver was not hurt.

Original Story:

Traffic is moving slowly on part of Interstate 29 as first responders work the scene of a semi rollover Thursday morning.

Traill County officials tell Valley News Live that both north- and southbound passing lanes of I-29 are blocked about 10 miles north of Hillsboro. That's where a semi crashed around 5 a.m.

There's no word on any injuries.
