DICKINSON, ND (AP) - DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified two Texas men who died after a head-on crash on a foggy highway in western North Dakota's oil patch.

The Highway Patrol says 25-year-old Joshua Schuchardt of Hallsville was pronounced dead upon arrival at a Dickinson hospital after the crash early Wednesday on state Highway 22 north of Dickinson. Twenty-three-year-old Derek Moore, of Center, died later in the day at a Bismarck hospital.

The two were passengers in a pickup truck that collided head-on with a semitrailer while passing another vehicle. The driver of the pickup and another passenger were hospitalized in Dickinson with unspecified injuries.
