MANNING, N.D. — A 40-year-old man from Kalispell, Mont., died Thursday in a two-vehicle crash in western North Dakota, the North Dakota Highway Patrol reported.

The crash occurred at 4:52 p.m. July 11 on Highway 22 about two miles south of Manning.

Robert Crawford was parked in the northbound right lane of a passing zone blocking off a hazmat cleanup crew working on the highway.

Colton Netzer, 29, of Chehalis, Wash., was heading north on Highway 22 when he rear-ended the Montana man's vehicle, pushing it off the roadway and into a ditch.

Netzer was taken to CHI St. Alexius in Dickinson to be treated for injuries.

Crawford was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. He was not wearing a seat belt.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating to determine if the younger driver could be charged in the accident.
