1 man killed, another escapes crash into Souris River

MINOT, N.D. — Authorities say a Minot man was killed when his vehicle crashed into the Souris River.

The Minot Police Department says the 25-year-old driver failed to negotiate a turn Monday evening, and his vehicle then ran over a dike and into the river. A passenger in the vehicle, 29-year-old Dustin Smith, was able to get out of the vehicle.

The Minot Fire Department dive team removed the driver from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at a hospital. The driver's name has not been released, pending notification of relatives.
