HILLSBORO — A Minneapolis man was killed in a rollover accident in a construction zone on Interstate 29 just north of Hillsboro on Monday evening.
Witnesses reported seeing the driver passing on the shoulder at high speeds when he lost control while passing a tractor-trailer.
North Dakota State Highway Patrol Sgt. Greg Smith said the crash happened about 7:42 p.m. Monday about 4 miles north of Hillsboro. Hillsboro is about 40 miles north of Fargo.
Smith said the victim was headed south in his black 2007 Chevrolet HHR in a section of I-29 that had been restricted to one lane because of construction.
After losing control, the car rolled several times. The driver was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene.
