After swerving to avoid a deer, a semi truck trailer rolled, spilling debris on I-94 near Rothsay Thursday.

David G Churchill, 52, of St. Paul was hauling two trailers west on I-94 when the deer appeared in front of him. After swerving, he managed to keep the truck and first trailer upright, but the second trailer rolled.

The right lane of I-94 westbound was blocked until the accident was cleaned up.

No injuries were reported, and the Minnesota State Patrol responded to the accident.
