A 52-year-old Hazen man is dead following a bizarre accident in Dickinson this afternoon.

The pickup he was driving westbound on I-94 left the interstate, crossed the eastbound lane, and went through the ditch before crashing into a house.

Sgt. Dan Haugen with the highway patrol says the truck came to a rest completely within the basement of the home.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A female homeowner and a child were home at the time but are uninjured.

The Dickinson Fire Department had to brace the house to secure it from potentially collapsing.

Haugen says an autopsy will be done to determine what caused the accident.

It happened around 11:45am mountain time.
