VALLEY CITY, N.D. -- Two men were pronounced dead at the scene of a fiery collision involving two semis around 9 a.m. Wednesday east of Litchville, the North Dakota Highway Patrol said.

The first vehicle was eastbound on Highway 46 about 20 miles south of Valley City when it failed to stop at the intersection of Highway 1, a release from the patrol stated. A northbound truck on Highway 1 wasn’t able to stop in time and struck the eastbound semi, Sgt. Tom Herzig said.

Both trucks ended up in the ditch near the intersection and both drivers were killed.

The crash remains under investigation. The drivers’ names have not been released.
