CAVALIER, N.D.—A 55-year-old man died from injuries sustained when he was thrown from the all-terrain vehicle he was driving on a rural road near here on Friday, April 13, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The accident happened when the driver was northbound on 134th Avenue Northeast, 7½ miles northwest of Cavalier in Pembina County, Sgt.
