DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - A 60-year-old man died over the weekend in a trench collapse in Benson County.

Sheriff Steve Rohrer tells KZZY radio that William Collins Jr. was installing a water line to a rural home northwest of Churchs Ferry late Sunday afternoon when the trench that had been dug for the line caved in.

Three other people were at the site and rescue crews were called in, but Rohrer says Collins died of his injuries at the scene.
