ALEXANDER, N.D. (AP) - A three-vehicle crash in the western North Dakota oil patch has killed a Wisconsin man and injured two other people from out of state.

The Highway Patrol says the crash happened shortly after 7 a.m. Tuesday on U.S. Highway 85, about 5 miles north of Alexander.

Authorities say a car driven by a 21-year-old man from Union Grove, Wisconsin, collided with a pickup truck that had turned in front of the car. The car came to rest on the highway and was struck moments later by a large work truck hauling a flatbed trailer loaded with pipe.

The Wisconsin man was taken to a Williston hospital, where he died. The two people in the pickup truck, from Pennsylvania and Arizona, suffered undisclosed injuries. The person in the work truck was not hurt.
