WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Three more men in western North Dakota are dead following a crash with a semitrailer on Highway 200.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says three men driving in a Dodge Ram were struck by the semi after failing to yield at an intersection Wednesday evening in McKenzie County.

All three men died in the crash. The driver was uninjured.

The Highway Patrol has not identified the men in the pickup, but said the driver was from Florida and his two passengers were from Idaho.

The crash is the second triple fatality in western North Dakota in less than two weeks. Three teenagers from Ray were killed on U.S. Highway 2 last week after colliding with a semitrailer.

Authorities closed the highway for two hours to clear the scene.
