ALICE, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a 58-year-old man is dead after he lost control of the truck tractor he was driving and was partially ejected from the vehicle.

Authorities say the incident happened around 10:10 a.m. Tuesday on Cass County Road 38, about 2 miles south of Alice. The vehicle slid sideways and overturned on the road, coming to rest upside down in the ditch.

Authorities say the driver was not wearing a seatbelt and was found partially ejected underneath the truck. The Fargo man was pronounced dead at the scene and authorities didn’t immediately identify him.

The Highway Patrol says the truck tractor the man was driving was towing an empty belly dump gravel trailer when the incident happened.

The Highway Patrol says the incident remains under investigation.
