2 North Dakota Students Killed, 1 Hurt, in Crash on I-94
Snow and icy road conditions were a factor in the accident
GLYNDON, Minn. (AP) – Two North Dakota State University students are dead and a third is injured after a crash on a snow and icy interstate in Minnesota.
The Minnesota State Patrol says 18-year-old Danie Thomssen of Fargo, and 19-year-old Carson Roney of Oaks were killed in the crash that happened about 10 p.m. Saturday, on Interstate-94 near Glyndon, in Minnesota’s Clay County.
Authorities say Thomssen was driving when the Chevy Cobalt lost control and slid into a guard rail in the median. Another passenger, 18-year-old Haley Visto of Oakes was injured.
The state patrol reports that all three were wearing seat belts.
The Star Tribune says all three were sophomores at NDSU. Roney and Thomssen were both biology majors, and Roney was studying to become a doctor.
