RUGBY, N.D. - A 20-year-old Bottineau man has been identified as the motorist who was killed Wednesday when his car hit the back of a food truck north of Rugby.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol reported that Seth Nelson was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Impala north on Highway 3 behind a food truck driven by Darek Falcon, 34, of Belcourt, at about 10 a.m. Wednesday.

The truck was slowing down to turn into a customer's home just over a hill. The car struck the right rear of the truck, spun counterclockwise and came to rest before catching on fire, the patrol said.

The Rugby Rural Fire Department extinguished the fire, and medical personnel pronounced Nelson dead at the scene, the patrol said.

Falcon was transported to the Heart of America Hospital in Rugby for treatment of his injuries.
