Two sisters killed in I-29 rollover
Two sisters have been identified as the women killed in a vehicle rollover on Interstate 29 Wednesday, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
The crash happened at 3:16 p.m. about 2 miles north of Hillsboro.
The patrol said a 1995 Ford Explorer SUV driven by Holly Nadeau, 23, Fargo, was northbound on the interstate when it entered the median and rolled multiple times. Nadeau and her sister, Ivy Nadeau, 20, Grand Forks, were ejected from the vehicle. They died of their injuries at the scene, the patrol said.
The patrol said there was ice and compacted snow on the highway and blowing snow at the time of the accident.
The sisters were not wearing seat belts, the patrol said. The Ford Explorer SUV was totaled.
The patrol said another crash occurred after the rollover involving a semi truck. The patrol said the second crash was a property damage crash. The driver of a southbound semi took evasive action to avoid the fatality crash, the semi jackknifed and entered the median south of the fatal crash. The semi was not a factor in the rollover that killed the two sisters, the patrol said.
Crash is under investigation by the patrol.
