Highway Patrol Investigates I-94 Accident

Posted: Updated:

A New Salem man is in the hospital after he lost control of his car this morning on I-94 in Bismarck.

Vernon Jacobson, 68, was driving east when his car drifted into the median and struck a bridge guardrail.

Jacobson was ejected from his vehicle, but his car went on for a ways without a driver until it headed into a ditch south of the Interstate, near the Washington St. underpass.

"A medical emergency that caused him to bounce off several guardrails, go into the median, and then he ended up hitting another end guardrail which tore the door off the vehicle. The individual ended up falling out onto the Interstate," says Capt. Kyle Kirchmeier of the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Jacobson was taken to Sanford Medical Center in Bismarck. North Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating.
