Sawyer rollover fatality identified

North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified the driver killed in a crash early Tuesday morning on Southeast 153rd Street, outside of Sawyer.

Taylor Flory, 22, of Harvey, was behind the wheel of a 2002 GMC Sierra when he negotiated a left curve near the bottom of a hill too quickly. The vehicle slid off of the roadway, climbing the bank of a ditch at an angle and overturning. The driver was not wearing his safety restraint at the time of the accident, and was partially ejected from the vehicle during its rollover.

Flory died at the scene, and the crash is still under investigation.
