ELLENDALE, N.D.–An 18-year-old man died Wednesday morning after he ran a stop sign and his SUV collided with semi-truck on a county road northeast of Ellendale.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified the victim as Boston Hagen of Fullerton, North Dakota.

The patrol says the semi was traveling eastbound on a county road when it t-boned Hagen’s southbound SUV, which failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection. Both vehicles then entered the south ditch.

Hagen, who was not wearing his seatbelt, died in the crash. The 61-year-old semi driver from Manitoba was not injured.
