WATFORD CITY, N.D. -

A Colorado Springs man escaped serious injury when an empty oil tanker truck rolled down a hill in Watford City and pushed the camper where he was sleeping into a house.

The Forum newspaper reports that 45-year-old Tom Netschert did not suffer any broken bones in the crash about 10:45 p.m. Saturday and was released from a hospital on Sunday.

The area where the crash happened is at the bottom of a hill where truck drivers often park while they stop at a convenience store.

Netschert has been working in the North Dakota oil fields as a mechanic. He plans to fly home to be with his family in Colorado Springs.
