Watford City man killed in semi rollover

WATFORD CITY, N.D. - A 59-year-old Watford City man was killed in a rollover crash 16 miles south of his hometown Tuesday morning, the North Dakota Highway Patrol reported Wednesday.

The patrol and the McKenzie County Sheriff’s Office investigated the crash, which killed Ronald Waters at about 9 a.m. Tuesday, when roads were icy and it was cloudy and snowing.

Waters was driving a 2011 Kenworth Straight Truck on McKenzie County 27 on a gravel road three miles east on the Long X Road. He was traveling east and came to a hillcrest with a curve and failed to negotiate the turn and went into the south ditch, the patrol said. The vehicle rolled and came to rest on its passenger side. The vehicle was totaled.

Waters was not wearing a seatbelt.
