  • North Dakota Highway Patrol says two accidents that occurred on the same road in the state's oil patch within days of each other resulted in three fatalities.
    The Bismarck Tribune reports 53-year-old Frederick Hale was killed on Thursday afternoon when he rear-ended a semi-trailer that was being repaired on the side of the road 13 miles west of New Town on Highway 22.
    Hale's vehicle spun before striking a pickup truck parked in front of the semi. The patrol says alcohol played a role in the accident.
    On Saturday, 39-year-old Corina Larocque and 41-year-old Ricky Finley were killed in a head-on collision with a flatbed truck four miles north of Mandaree. The patrol says the crash that killed the Mandaree residents is still under investigation.
