MANDAREE, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a three-vehicle, weather-related crash near Mandaree killed one person and prompted the temporary closure of a highway intersection.

The crash happened around 7 a.m. Tuesday at the intersection of state Highways 22 and 73.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says 26-year-old Lacey Eckert was driving a Ford pickup truck heading east on Highway 73 and failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection with Highway 22. Eckert’s vehicle struck the driver’s side doors of a GMC pickup truck, which spun and entered the ditch.

After the collision, a truck trailer heading south on Highway 22 struck Eckert’s vehicle. The truck trailer overturned, blocking two lanes, but its driver wasn’t hurt.

Authorities say the GMC pickup’s driver died at the scene. He wasn’t immediately identified.

Eckert, of Durango, Colorado, and a passenger of the GMC pickup were injured.
