MEDINA, N.D. — The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified the man killed in a Sunday afternoon, Dec. 20, crash near Medina.
Harlan Vining, 61, Jamestown, was pronounced dead at Jamestown Regional Medical Center.
The accident occurred at 1:23 p.m. a mile east of Medina on Interstate 94. The patrol said Vining was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado west on I-94 near mile marker 231. The pickup partially entered the median of I-94 as the trailer it was pulling began to fishtail. The driver overcorrected to the right and the Silverado entered the north ditch of I-94 traveling sideways, causing it to overturn. The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected, the patrol said.
There was freezing rain at the time of the crash and roads were wet and had scattered ice, the patrol said.
The crash is under investigation.
