At 8:11 am, a 1999 Kenworth semi-truck with a belly dump trailer was northbound on State
Highway 1 in Lamoure County with a load of rock. A 2019 Dodge Ram, driven by a 58yr old
male from Valley City, ND, was driving southbound approaching the Kenworth. As the two
vehicles neared each other, the belly dump trailer released its load of rock onto the roadway.

A loose rock from this load struck the windshield of the Dodge, passing through the
windshield striking the driver.

The driver of the Dodge was treated by Oakes and Lamoure Ambulance Services. The driver
of the Dodge was transported to Oakes Hospital where he later died from injuries sustained in
the crash.

The passenger in the Dodge, Gary Engstrom, was injured. The driver of the Kenworth, Lyle
Hanson was also uninjured.
The load of rock was not intended to be dumped onto Hwy. 1. The crash remains under
investigation by the Highway Patrol.
