TRENTON, N.D. - A 31-year-old Trenton man is dead after the pickup he was driving Thursday night about three miles south of the city drifted off the road and overturned, ejecting him from the vehicle.

Tyler Wuertz was westbound in a Ford F150 about 10:48 p.m. at an "unknown high rate of speed," the North Dakota Highway Patrol said in its report. The vehicle struck an approach, overturned and came to rest on its wheels.

Wuertz was not wearing a seat belt, the Patrol said.

Trenton is about 14 miles southwest of Williston.
