ALEXANDER, N.D. — A collision involving a pickup truck and a semitrailer in the western North Dakota oil patch has killed two people, including a Farmington man, and injured two others.

The Highway Patrol says the pickup failed to stop at a U.S. Highway 85 intersection near Alexander shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday and collided with the semi.

The 30-year-old man from Farmington who was driving the pickup was killed, along with a 26-year-old man from Reno, Nevada, who was a passenger in the pickup.

Two other passengers suffered undisclosed injuries — a 29-year-old man from Bloomfield and a 30-year-old man from Lubbock, Texas.

The Colorado man driving the semi was not hurt.
