STANLEY, N.D. -- The driver of a pickup truck was killed Friday morning when he lost control of his truck on a snowy highway.

A release from the North Dakota Highway Patrol said Michael Ducker, 53, of Meridian, Ind., was driving northbound on North Dakota Highway 8, about 13 miles south of Stanley, when he lost control of his Chevrolet pickup and swerved into oncoming traffic. He hit a Mazda hatchback car driven by Steven Schoeny, 21, of Huntsville, Ala., about 6:45 a.m.

Both vehicles left the road after impact, with Ducker’s truck being totalled while Schoeny’s car sustained front-end damage.

Schoeny and Ducker’s passenger, 51-year-old Paul Williams, of Trenton, N.D., were both injured in the crash, and neither were wearing seatbelts. Their condition is unknown.

Ducker was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.
