DAWSON — Twenty-one steers were killed when a semitrailer bound from Canada to South Dakota crashed during a freezing rain storm in North Dakota.

The Highway Patrol says the semi rolled on its side in a ditch Friday afternoon off an icy highway near the south central town of Dawson. Fifty-three steers survived.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the 24-year-old driver of the semitrailer was not hurt.
