WILLISON, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the driver of a pickup truck was killed when his vehicle was caught between two semis in a crash in Williams County.

The patrol says the 58-year-old man from Alexander died at the scene Monday afternoon. The crash happened on Highway 85 near Williston when the pickup and the semi ahead of it started to slow down due to construction.

Authorities say the second semi struck the pickup, pushed it into the back of the first semi and came to rest on the top of the truck.

KFGO reports the driver of the second semi, a 50-year-old Williston man, was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries. The driver of the first semi driver wasn’t hurt.
