A Rugby, N.D., man was killed in a Friday evening three-vehicle accident, the North Dakota Highway Patrol reported.

At 6:46 p.m., Robert Bosch, 75, was driving a 1990 Oldsmobile car west on U.S. Highway 2 east of Rugby and was in the passing lane behind a 1994 Kenworth Semi driven by Nathan Blessum, 26, Rugby. When Blessum slowed so he could turn left onto a cross-over, Bosch's car struck the back of the semi.

The car rotated counter-clockwise, hitting the rear quarter panel of a 2005 Pontiac van in the driving lane driven by Edwin Cantlon, 71, Minot. Cantlon's van entered the median, but he regained control and stopped down the roadway.

The car came to rest on the north approach on its wheels. Bosch was not wearing a seat belt, and was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger from Rugby, Joan Bosch, 71, suffered injuries and was taken by ambulance to Heart of America Medical Center in Rugby and later flown to Trinity Health in Minot.

A Trinity Health nursing supervisor said the woman asked that no information be released on her condition.

Blessum's semi finished the turn and stopped on the south approach, and he was not injured, but his trailer was damaged. Cantlon and his passenger Cleo Cantlon, 71, also from Minot, were both uninjured.
