MINOT, N.D. (AP) - The driver of a propane transport truck was injured when the vehicle crashed into a hotel in Minot and flipped on its side.

The truck sustained significant damage, according to fire officials, but the propane tank remained intact and no propane leaked from the unit Wednesday afternoon.

The driver was taken to Trinity Hospital. There’s no word on the extent of the individual’s injuries.

The propane truck veered off a Highway 83 bypass and struck the southwest side of the Hyatt House, causing major damage, officials said. Fire department crews stabilized the damage and used construction material to close a hole the truck had created.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
