JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a Minnesota man was killed at Jamestown when his pickup was hit by an oncoming vehicle whose driver had fallen asleep.

The patrol says it happened Monday morning on Interstate 94 when 18-year-old Ashley Birkle, of Killdeer, was going east in a Chevy Tahoe, fell asleep, lost control, crossed the median and struck a westbound Ford pickup.

The 61-year-old Garfield, Minnesota, man driving the pickup, David Herold, died at the scene.

Birkle and a 35-year-old Dalton man who was a passenger in the pickup were taken to the Jamestown hospital with injuries that weren’t life threatening.

The interstate was partially blocked for several hours after the crash, which is still under investigation.
