BISMARCK, N.D. (AP)

Authorities say a 74-year-old Hollandale, Minnesota man was killed after his pickup truck was struck by a train in northwestern North Dakota.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the crash happened shortly before 2 p.m. Saturday near Des Lacs.

Troopers say the man was working for a custom combining operation and was leaving a farm. The patrol says he failed to yield at a crossing and his vehicle was struck on the passenger side by an eastbound BNSF train.

Troopers say the train pushed the pickup for about a mile until it came to a stop.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name has not been released.
