The name of the 66-year-old man killed in the crash has not been released.

The accident occurred at 7:19 p.m. about 11 miles east of Jamestown on Interstate 94.

State Radio had received reports 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 and veered back onto the westbound lane before spinning out of control and rolling.

The driver was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. He was the only occupant of the vehicle.

The accident remains under investigation by the patrol, and the patrol said alcohol is not believed to be a factor.

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.
