A man has lost his life following a two-car accident on Interstate 94 near Jamestown, according to local authorities. North Dakota police attended to the car crash that killed a 61-year-old man and sent two other people to the hospital. So far, police have not filed official charges against the other driver involved in the accident, though the evidence seems to suggest she may have been at fault.
One person has been killed and another sent to a hospital following a serious car accident on Highway 26 the evening of Jan. 25, according to local sources. North Dakota Highway Patrol has issued a statement confirming the fatality in the car crash, which is still under investigation. At this time, no charges have been filed, but they may be pending the results of the investigation.
One recent wreck in North Dakota proved to be fatal for two victims, leaving two others with injuries. Just one of the state's many unfortunate car accidents, the actual cause of this one may not yet be known. The injured and deceased victims ranged in age from 23 to 43.
Several years ago, a family of three was killed by a driver who was suspected of being intoxicated. After that tragic wreck and many similar car accidents, North Dakota passed a new law last year in an effort to reduce drunk driving incidents. The new law was inspired in part in memory of the family who died along with the driver who hit them.
Operating a vehicle is not a task that can be taken lightly. No matter what a person's age, there are always risks associated with not paying attention to where and how one is driving. Multiple car accidents were recently reported by North Dakota highway patrol officials.
Is it blind luck, random chance or divine intervention that allows a drunken man to safely drive the wrong way on an interstate for 20 miles? We don’t know the answer, but we do know the Montana man arrested this past weekend on Interstate 90 ought to be grateful that neither he nor anyone else was injured or killed in a car accident as he barreled eastward in the westbound lane.
Whether on the streets of Billings or out on the highways, Montana drivers are known for their eagerness to get quickly to their destinations. Unfortunately, speed is often a factor in car accidents, and increasingly, distracted drivers are factors in many crashes as well.
