CARTWRIGHT, N.D. — A 60-year-old Montana man died Friday, Jan. 14, about noon in a crash with an oil country tanker loaded with salt water near the state line.

The Fairview man, who wasn't identified, was driving a Volvo truck towing a trailer when he failed to stop for a stop sign and struck the side of a tanker loaded with 165 barrels of salt water driven by a 50-year-old Washington, Kansas, man, said the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The victim died at the Sidney, Montana, hospital about 17 miles away. The other truck driver wasn't injured.

No hazardous material was released from the original containment of the salt water.

The incident occurred at the intersection of McKenzie County Road 16 and 154th Avenue Northwest, which is about 35 miles west of Watford City.
