One dead, one injured in crash near Langdon

LANGDON, N.D. – A 63-year-old man was killed and another man was injured Friday night in a two-vehicle crash near here.

According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, the crash took place around 6 p.m. on a county gravel road two miles northeast of Langdon – a city about 15 miles south of the Canadian border and 50 miles west of Interstate 29.

A northbound 1998 Ford truck being driven by Robert Soli, 72, of Walhalla, entered an intersection at the same time as a westbound 2006 Chevrolet truck being driven by Randy Evans, 63, of Langdon, the Highway Patrol said.

The front of the Ford struck the driver’s side of the Chevrolet, pushing it into the ditch and causing it to overturn. Evans was ejected from the truck and was killed. He was not wearing a seat belt, the Highway Patrol reported.

Soli was injured in the crash, but the extent of his injuries is not known.
