Man killed in rollover accident near Minnewaukan, N.D.

MINNEWAUKAN, N.D. – A 43-year-old man from Maddock died in a rollover accident early today on U.S. Highway 281 about six miles south of Minnewaukan, the North Dakota Highway Patrol reported.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. His name was not released.

According to the patrol, the driver was traveling southbound at 12:30 a.m. when he failed to negotiate a left-hand curve in the roadway, drifted to the right shoulder and overcorrected, causing the 1997 Jeep Cherokee to yaw across the roadway and roll in the east ditch. The vehicle came to rest on the passenger’s side.

The accident remains under investigation.
