WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The Highway Patrol says a man operating a compacting machine in a construction zone on a Williams County road died in a mishap.

Authorities say the 63-year-old man drove the vehicle too close to the edge of the roadway, and it slid into the ditch and rolled.

The man died at the scene about 15 miles northwest of Williston, shortly after 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. He was not immediately identified.
