WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a 34-year-old man died in a motorcycle accident in Williams County after he failed to see a parked semi-truck.

The Patrol says David Mecham was heading west on a 2000 Harley Davidson on West Front Street near Williston Saturday night when he didn’t see a semi-truck that was parked at a construction site waiting to unload dirt.

The Patrol says the motorcycle and the semi-truck came to rest facing west.

Authorities say Mecham, of Williston, was not wearing a helmet and was pronounced dead at the scene. The truck driver was not injured.

The incident report shows no charges were filed against the truck driver and the damage to the semi was estimated at $1,000.
