Rollover kills teen driver, injures 4 passengers

LAMOURE, N.D. — Authorities say a teenage driver was killed and four passengers were injured when a pickup truck rolled over near Lamoure.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the truck was heading north on a gravel road about 2½ miles south of Lamoure Saturday morning when the driver lost control. The truck entered a ditch, crashed through a barbed wire fence into a pasture and overturned.

The patrol says that none of the occupants were wearing seatbelts and they were thrown from the truck.

The crash killed 18-year-old Micah Wagner of Fullerton. The four passengers, ages 14 through 21, were taken by ambulance to the Oakes hospital.

The crash remains under investigation.
