A 34-year-old Texas man was killed Saturday after his vehicle collided with a tanker truck west of Killdeer.
Aaron Petree of Abilene, Texas was traveling eastbound on Highway 200, about a half-mile west of Killdeer, when his 1996 Chevrolet Blazer careened into oncoming traffic, according to reports from the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
According to the report, Petree was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle upon impact.
Russell Ware, 44, of Blackfoot, Idaho was traveling westbound on the highway from Watford City to Killdeer, driving a 2009 Peterbilt truck, hauling a tanker trailer, when Petree struck him head-on, said the report.
Petree’s vehicle spun across the road, coming to rest in a ditch to the north of the roadway. Ware, who police indicated was wearing a seatbelt, left the roadway and stopped in a ditch south of the road.
Petree was pronounced dead at the scene. Ware was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Dickinson by the Dickinson Ambulance. He was reported to have no injuries from the crash.
The incident remains under investigation by the highway patrol.
