(Douglas, ND) -- Two 12-year-old girls are seriously injured and an adult is dead following a single vehicle crash west of Douglas North Dakota.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the driver, a 42-year-old man from Ryder, was traveling west on Ward County Road 24. Officials say the vehicle drove into a ditch as it approached a crop sprayer, faulted off an approach, and overturned end-over-end. The driver was partially ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene. The two juveniles sustained serious injures and were transported to Trinity Hospital.

The incident is under investigation by the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
