The accident occurred at 7:19 p.m. about 11 miles east of Jamestown.

The patrol said State Radio had received a call of a Toyota Tacoma pickup traveling westbound on I-94 in a reckless manner. While law enforcement units were responding, the pickup entered the median, traveled a short distance, then veered back onto the westbound lanes before spinning out of control and rolling several times before coming to rest on its wheels.

The driver, Mike Caldwell, 66, Portland, Ore., was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. He was the only occupant of the vehicle.

The patrol said alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash, which is still under investigation.

The patrol was assisted by the Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office, Barnes County Sheriff’s Office, Jamestown Ambulance and Jamestown Rural Fire Department.

Officials said the westbound lane of I-94 was closed for about 2 hours while the crash was investigated.
