A 22-year-old man from Miles City died from injuries suffered in a two-vehicle accident near Fairview Friday morning.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol has not released the name of the victim.
The patrol reports the man was driving a 2005 Dodge Stratus and traveling southbound on North Dakota Highway 58. He came to a stop at the intersection of ND Highway 58 and Highway 200. A 2007 Peterbilt, driven by a 24-year-old Palm Harbor, Fla. man, was also traveling southbound on Highway 58 and failed to stop at the intersection.
The Peterbilt rear ended the Stratus to cause both vehicles to run off the road into an irrigation ditch. The Stratus overturned and came to rest upside down. The 22-year-old was trapped in the vehicle and extricated by emergency personnel.
Both men were transported to the Sidney Health Center by Fairview ambulance. The driver of the Stratus died of a result of injuries suffered in the crash. The accident happened at 7:10 a.m.
