BISMARCK, N.D. — A 50-year-old Mandan man is dead after suffering a medical problem and crashing his pickup truck off Interstate 94.

The Highway Patrol says Roger Erhardt’s truck left the roadway about 8:45 a.m. Tuesday, went through the median and across the oncoming lanes of traffic. After entering the ditch, the vehicle struck a fence and then a personal watercraft trailer in a parking lot.

Erhardt was taken to a Bismarck hospital where he died.
