Jenny Michael Woman dies in head-on collision A Spearfish, S.D., woman died in a head-on collision on Highway 85 early Friday morning, the North Dakota Highway Patrol says. Stevie Kulseth, 18, was heading south on Highway 85 when her 2003 Dodge Stratus crossed over into the northbound lane and hit a 1999 Kenworth semi at 2: 14 a.m., the patrol said. Semi driver Mark Maki, 44, of Watford City, was injured in the crash. He was treated at St. Joseph's Hospital and released, the patrol said.

Maki's truck went off the road into an east ditch, and fell onto its side, the patrol said. The truck, which was hauling crude oil, shifted back onto its wheels because of the liquid weight in the trailer, the patrol said. Kulseth was pronounced dead on the scene. Maki's truck sustained $99,000 damage, and Kulseth's car was totaled, the patrol said. The crash is still under investigation.

Mobile home broken into Someone broke into a mobile trailer parked in the Misty Waters subdivision and took about $2,000 worth of equipment, the Burleigh County Sheriff's Department says. Burleigh County Sheriff's Capt. Collin Rixen said a laptop computer, a printer, an impact tool set and a hand tool set were stolen from a Northern Improvement mobile trailer Monday night or Tuesday morning. Craig Lakoduk, a project manager at Northern Improvement, said construction sites often have things stolen from them because it's hard to monitor them constantly. The trailers are locked and usually no one disturbs them, he said.

"We use a padlock and a key and we've been about 95 percent successful with that," he said. "We try not to keep a whole house in there." The department has no leads, Rixen said. "Not much to go on there."
