MAX, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say two men are dead after a car crash in west-central North Dakota.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the crash happened at 7 p.m. Saturday on U.S. 83 about five miles north of Max.

Witnesses say an Acura sedan passed them at a high rate of speed in the left lane. The car began to drift toward the median, then overcorrected, struck a crossover and flipped.

Both occupants were thrown from the car and died at the scene. The victims are identified as 25-year-old Kenneth Norton of Three Forks, Montana, and 29-year-old Clinton Rux of Gillette, Wyoming.

The Highway Patrol says the crash is still under investigation, and authorities do not know which man was driving.
