The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a van stopped on the shoulder of Highway 28 south of Ryder around 10:30 a.m. Thursday. The people inside the van got out, and after a dog got loose from the vehicle, the 23-year-old man tried to chase it and was hit by the oncoming SUV.

The SUV was driven by a 23-year-old woman from New Town. She was not hurt.

It was raining at the time of the crash. KFGO Radio reports the name of the victim was not released.
