Kulm man dies in LaMoure County accident

A Kulm, N.D., man has died of injuries sustained during a Sept. 3 accident, the North Dakota Highway Patrol said Wednesday.

Albert Oberlander, 89, died Monday from injuries he received when he fell asleep at the wheel of a 2001 Ford Windstar.

The accident occurred at 12:10 p.m. while Oberlander was traveling southbound about 5 miles northwest of Jud on LaMoure County Road 65. The vehicle left the roadway and entered the west ditch before vaulting over a field approach, the patrol said. It is unknown if he was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

Oberlander was transported by Gackle Ambulance to Jamestown Regional Medical Center.
