BISMARCK, N.D. — The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified the victims of interstate crashes on separate sides of the state.

Authorities say 81-year-old Norman Erhardt of Dickinson died Friday night when the sport utility vehicle he was driving was rear-ended on Interstate 94 in Stark County. The SUV went in the median and rolled.

A rollover crash in Traill County early Sunday killed a 73-year-old Grand Forks man. The patrol says Harold Weivoda was a passenger in a pickup truck that rolled in the median on Interstate 29, while towing a trailer.

The driver of the pickup was taken to a Grand Forks hospital with unspecified injuries.
