Carolyn J. English, Bainville, Mont., was driving a 2013 Chevrolet pickup north on Highway 23 when she turned left onto 38th Street northwest in front of a 1989 Kenworth semi. The semi, driven by Frank A. Carvell of Newport, Wash., hit the pickup as it turned, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol. 

The pickup came to rest in the east ditch, and the semi rolled to the driver side of the pickup before stopping. Part of the semi trailer obstructed the highway, and the road was closed for three hours.

Carvell, 45, was not wearing a seatbelt. It is not clear if he was pronounced dead at the scene. English, 50, was wearing her seatbelt and was transported to Trinity Hospital in Minot. Both vehicles were totaled.

The crash is under investigation.
