Fatal Crash on US Highway 2 near Stanley in ND

Graham Marshall - Saturday, June 22, 2013

A crash and subsequent fire involving two semi-trucks and three pickup-trucks occurred today on  U.S. Highway 2 between Stanley and Palermo.

The crash occurred in thick fog at about 635am with at least one vehicle colliding broadside into a tanker carrying oil.

One tanker was from MIB and one pick-up truck belonged to Triangle Electrical.

The fire was burning for several hours and multiple fatalities are expected.

Employees from Risk Tool Box were driving on Highway 2 at the time of the crash and report that a number of vehicles were speeding at excessive speed.  All of our employees are accounted for.

Dr Graham Marshall from the Risk Tool Box said "the fog was pretty thick and it was only safe to be doing 50mph.  Some cars were travelling much quicker as they overtook me".

 This accident serves as a reminder to just slow down when driving in North Dakota.
