WATFORD CITY -- A male pickup driver was killed sometime Tuesday after rolling the vehicle off an icy and snow-packed gravel road about 15 miles north of Watford City, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The driver of a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado was eastbound on 41st Street Northwest in rural McKenzie County at an unknown speed when he negotiated a curve in the road, crested a hill and then traveled into a part of the road filled with snow and ice. That caused the pickup to slide into the ditch, go through barb-wire fence and overturn.

The driver, whose identity and age have not been released, was alone in the vehicle and was not wearing a seatbelt. He was ejected and died on scene.

The time of the crash is unknown, the Highway Patrol stated.
