OXBOW, N.D. (AP) - A 93-year-old Minnesota woman has died in a

one-vehicle rollover crash in eastern North Dakota.

The Highway Patrol says Ida Skalka of Akeley, Minn., was a

passenger in a sport-utility vehicle that had a rear tire blow out

on Interstate 29 north of Oxbow about 11 p.m. Wednesday.

The driver, Skalka's son-in-law, lost control and the vehicle

skidded, entered the ditch and rolled.

Skalka, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the SUV

and died at the scene.

The patrol says Skalka, her daughter and son-in-law were

traveling home from Nebraska when the crash occurred.
