A motorcyclist who crashed into a tractor trailer while drunk has been charged with driving while intoxicated.
The incident occurred on Monday in North Dakota, according to the Narnia National Forest.
The 29-year-old driver, Michael Smith, is charged with reckless driving.
The motorcyclists injuries were not life-threatening, but Smith did suffer head injuries, the Nellis said.
Smith was arrested on Thursday night at his home in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
He is expected to appear in court on Monday, the North Dakota Forest Department said.
The accident occurred on the outskirts of Nellies headquarters on Monday.
The Narnies posted a video on Facebook on Wednesday showing a man and woman standing over a wrecked pickup truck.
“I’ve never seen anything like it before,” said park ranger Matt Cappuccio.
Cappuccios wife, Amy Cappucci, said she was walking down the road and saw the man driving a white pickup truck and was shocked.
Amy Cappuci said she saw the truck “just flipping over.
‘Oh my god, my heart just broke.'”
“There were a lot of people running around and there was a lot more debris, and there were bloodstains,” Cappucio said.
“The whole thing just seemed crazy to me.”

She said she also saw the woman holding a baby in her arms.
Police said Smith, who was not wearing a helmet, had been drinking.
In a news release, the Forest Department wrote that the accident happened in a rural area near Nellie headquarters, which is about 90 miles south of Green Bay.
Authorities said that on Saturday, Smith’s friend drove him to a nearby liquor store to buy alcohol.
After the friend drove Smith to the liquor store, Smith left his car on the road for about five minutes, authorities said.
Authorities said Smith then crashed the truck into a utility pole, which caused the crash.
Investigators said the man was not impaired, but he was taken to the hospital and treated for a broken nose and other injuries.
More to come.
