(Underwood) A semi driver was hurt Thursday afternoon when a gust of wind forced his rig to lose control on Interstate 80 in Pottawattamie County.
The Iowa State Patrol says 60-year-old Kenneth Alan Acquistanpace, of Goleta, California was injured in the crash at around 3:35 p.m.near the 12 mile marker.
Authorities say Acquistanpace was westbound on I-80 when his 2010 Freightliner was struck by a gust of wind that caused it to lose control. The semi rolled onto the drivers side across both westbound lanes.
Acquistanpace was transported by Underwood Rescue to Mercy Hospital in Council Bluffs.
