RAY, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified the driver who died when his semi overturned on U.S. Highway 2.

Sixty-seven-year-old Richard Cantone, of Minot, died at the scene of the crash early Monday near Ray.

Authorities say the semi was hauling two trailers with about 9,000 gallons of gasoline and 1,000 gallons of diesel, some of which spilled when the semi overturned. It isn’t known how much fuel spilled. A stretch of Highway 2 was closed for more than 12 hours for cleanup.
