Man killed in motorcycle crash identified

BELFIELD, N.D. - The name of the motorcycle driver killed in a crash north of Belfield on Tuesday was released Wednesday by the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Mark Engel, 57, of Auburn, Wash., was driving a 2007 Harley-Davidson motorcycle north on U.S. Highway 85 about 13 miles north of Belfield. The motorcycle drove off the edge of the road, into the east ditch and hit a dirt embankment. Engel was not wearing a helmet. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The patrol said the accident occurred in a construction zone, but the roadway was in normal condition as the construction work was being completed in the ditches at this location.
