Ray, N.D.- UPDATE: A 67-year old Minot man died Monday in a semi accident on U.S. Hwy. 2 about three miles west of Ray, N.D.

About 4 this morning a 2016 freighliner semi pulling two trailers traveling westbound on Hwy 2 entered the median at mile marker 50.

The semi and trailer overturned onto the passenger side facing southwest in the median, and the pup trailer disconnected and overturned facing northwest in the median.

The driver was thrown from the semi and killed.

The trailers about 9,000 gallons of gasoline and about 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel spilled, but authorities say they don't yet know how much.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the highway has re-opened after being closed for about 10 and a half hours. Cleanup crews are still working in the median.
