NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) - The Highway Patrol says a crash in involving two semitrailers and two pickups killed a Louisiana man and shut down a highway in the North Dakota oil patch for seven hours.

The accident happened at 7:45 a.m. Saturday on state Highway 23, about 10 miles west of New Town. The victim was identified as 31-year-old Huan Son of New Iberia, La.

Son was driving a 2012 Ford pickup. The patrol says Son tried to pass one semi on the crest of a hill and wound up colliding with both semis. One of the semis spun into another pickup.

There were no other injuries.

Authorities say the road and weather conditions were good at the time of the crash.
