BOWMAN, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified the 89-year-old Bowman man who died after the minivan he was driving collided with a train at a rural crossing in southwestern North Dakota.

The Highway Patrol Clemens Schaaf was traveling to a rural residence east of Bowman on Thursday afternoon and failed to stop at the crossing.

A BNSF Railway train en route from Forsyth, Montana, to Hettinger struck the front driver side of the minivan, and Schaaf died at the scene.
