Meanwhile, in a separate crash that occurred at about the same time, a 49-year-old was injured in a motorcycle crash near Osnabrock.

According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol:

The driver of the pickup, whose name was not released, was driving northbound on a gravel road less than a mile southwest of Osnabrock when his pickup failed to negotiate a turn.

The truck overturned and came to rest in a ditch.

The crash happened about 6 p.m.

In the other crash, a motorcycle was driving on a paved road about two miles south of Osnabrock when the motorcycle encountered a part of the roadway that was covered with gravel due to road construction.

The driver lost control and the motorcycle entered the ditch, throwing the rider, who was not wearing a helmet.
