The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a 51-year-old Hannah man died,
presumably by drowning late Tuesday evening.
The man's name's being withheld for now.
The HP says the man was driving home and tried to cross a washed-out
part of a township road. Rising waters washed out that portion of road earlier Monday,
about 20-miles north-northwest of Langdon.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol statement says the man's pickup was
partially submerged in the frigid floodwater. The man got out of the pickup and
tried to walk through the water to his home. The HP says it appears the man
was overwhelmed by the frigid water and the cold night-time temperature.
The man was found Wednesday morning, about nine-30 and authorities
are still investigating.
That township road was not closed.
