WATFORD CITY, N.D. (AP) — A truck driver is being treated for life-threatening injuries after a crash in the western North Dakota oil patch.

The Highway Patrol says 62-year-old Raymond Sosinski failed to negotiate a curve on a McKenzie County road shortly before 4:30 a.m. Monday. The semitrailer he was driving overturned.

Sosinski was injured and flown to a Minot hospital for treatment.


(This story has been corrected to show that the Highway Patrol now says that Sosinski did not die of his injuries, but is being treated for life-threatening injuries.)
