     MANVEL, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says a woman and her young son died when the vehicle she was driving veered off a Grand Forks County road and landed upside down in a river.
 
     The crash happened about 3 p.m. Wednesday about three miles south of Manvel. Officials say their Volkswagen Jetta left the roadway and overturned, coming to rest mostly submerged in the Turtle River. The patrol says the 40-year-old mother and her 3-year-old son, who was in a car seat, were taken to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks where they died. The mother and child were from Mekinock. They have not been identified.

    BISMARCK, N.D. - The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality has been notified of a produced water spill resulting from a pipeline leak in McKenzie County. The pipeline is owned and operated by Caliber Midstream North Dakota LLC. The incident occurred about 8 miles north of Alexander on May 10, and it was reported the same day.

    Initial estimates indicate approximately 3,500 barrels of produced water were released and impacted pastureland. Personnel from the Department are inspecting the site and will continue to monitor the investigation and remediation.

    MINOT, ND - The City of Minot will celebrate National Public Works week from May 19th-25th, including a special open house at the Public Works building. The open house is scheduled for Wednesday, May 22nd, from 2 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Public Works building located at 1025 31st Street Southeast.

    The department's various pieces of large and small equipment will be on display, and there will be a sewer televising demonstration. One of the department's snow plows will be painted white, and visitors are encouraged sign the plow or add their own art work. Hot dogs, chips, and water will be served while supplies last.

    "This is an opportunity for us to share with the public some of the things we do on a daily basis, and to let them see first-hand the various pieces of equipment we use to do our jobs," Public Works Director Dan Jonasson said. "There are so many different departments that make up Public Works, and our employees have a wide variety of responsibilities. This open house allows us to showcase all of our departments."

    The open house includes giveaways and prize drawings, with the grand prize for one student being picked up by a garbage truck and taken to school on Thursday, May 23.

    "This will be a fun way for a student to end the school year. Who doesn't want to ride to school in a garbage truck?" Jonasson said.

    The American Public Works Association has sponsored National Public Works week since 1960 to educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives, including planning, building, managing, and operating the heart of their local communities to improve everyday quality of life.

     CHARLESTON, West Virginia (AP) - Five state attorneys general have announced new lawsuits against the maker of OxyContin as they seek to hold the drug industry responsible for an opioid crisis. Filings were announced today by officials in Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, West Virginia and Wisconsin. With the suits, 45 states are now taking legal action against OxyContin maker Purdue Pharma, asserting that the company downplayed the addiction risks of its powerful prescription drug. Several states are also other drugmakers or distributors.

    Pennsylvania's attorney general also announced a suit this week against Purdue, saying the company was not working in good faith on a settlement agreement. Purdue disputes that.

    The company had a legal win this month when a North Dakota judge dismissed that state's claim against the company.
