Grand Forks County Accident Victim Dies


A 21-year-old Manitoba man, who was driving a truck tractor with a trailer, carrying hot tar, has died from his injuries sustained in the crash last Wednesday.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Bradley Jackson was driving the vehicle on Grand Forks County Road 7, when its right side wheels left the roadway, causing the vehicle to tip and slide into the south ditch. The trailer ruptured, spilling the load.

Jackson was transported to Altru in Grand Forks, where he died.

The crash is under investigation by the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
