The driver of a pickup pulling a camper trailer lost control of his vehicle while passing a semi Friday and rolled into a ditch.

The driver, Lorenz Wahlers, 64, St. Louis, and a passenger, Sharon Wahlers, 66, St. Louis, were injured and transported to Gove County Medical Center in Quinter.

Lorenz Wahlers was eastbound on Interstate 70 in a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado when the accident occurred approximately 1.5 miles east of Grinnell. The vehicle rolled into the north ditch after the camper trailer started to fishtail in the wind. Both occupants were wearing a seatbelt.
