Man dies in oil field accident in western North Dakota

Email

A man died Monday afternoon in an apparent oil field-related accident in Dunn County, authorities say.

Dunn County Sheriff Don Rockvoy said the death occurred at an oil rig site, which was not yet operational.

"I'm not going to disclose much until this gets investigated," Rockvoy said. "It's being investigated at this time by outside agencies, just kind of going through the process. We don't want to release any unnecessary information until that stuff all gets done."
