18-year-old dies in rollover crash near Wahpeton, N.D.

An 18-year-old man was killed this morning in a rollover accident west of Wahpeton, N.D.

According to North Dakota Highway Patrol Lt. Bryan Niewind:

The man was driving eastbound on Highway 13 at about 9:05 a.m., when he apparently lost control of his Ford pickup and began to spin on the roadway west of the Interstate 29 overpass.

The pickup spun into the median guardrail, vaulted over it and rolled through the median. The vehicle ultimately came to rest on its side in the median between the east- and westbound Highway 13 overpass bridges.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity has not yet been released.

The patrol reported patchy ice conditions on the roadway, overcast skies and blowing snow at the time of the accident.

The crash remains under investigation.
