RODANTHE, N.C. (AP) -- The state Highway Patrol says a Transportation Department employee died on N.C. 12 when his dump truck rear-ended one that had broken down on the highway.  

Trooper William Harrison says a dump truck driven by 36-year-old Michael Brad Stevenson hit one sitting in the road that was driven by 45-year-old Ronnie Allen Anderson. Stevenson's truck caught fire, and he was killed.  

Anderson was injured and taken to a hospital in Norfolk, Va.  

The men were removing sand from the highway, which was damaged by Hurricane Sandy last month and a more recent nor'easter.  

The highway had just reopened Saturday to 4-wheel-drive vehicles. It was closed for several hours Sunday before DOT reopened it but now only during daylight hours and still limited to those vehicles.
