Names Released of Sisters Killed in I-29 Rollover

Posted: Updated:

THURSDAY UPDATE

The North Dakota Highway Patrol has released the names of two women who were killed in a rollover crash on Interstate-29 Wednesday afternoon. Holly and Ivy Nadeau both died from their injuries on the scene.

The two women were sisters and originally from the Mandan, North Dakota, area. Holly was 23 years old and was living in Fargo, Ivy was 20 years old and living in Grand Forks.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the SUV they were in went into the median and rolled several times just north of Hillsboro, North Dakota, around 3:15 Wednesday afternoon.

A second crash involving a semi occurred at the same location as this deadly crash on Wednesday afternoon. The Nadeau girls were heading northbound and the semi was southbound.

The semi was not a factor in the fatality crash, it came upon the previous crash and the driver of the semi took evasive action to avoid the fatality crash.   The semi jack knifed and entered the median just south of the fatal crash.

ORIGINAL STORY

Road conditions quickly deteriorated Wednesday afternoon as wind picked up and freshly fallen snow started blowing across roadways. Several crashes and rollovers have been reported in both North Dakota and Minnesota, up and down the Red River Valley.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says two young women in their twenties were killed Wednesday afternoon when the SUV they were in rolled several times. The crash happened just after 3:15 p.m. on Interstate-29 about two miles north of Hillsboro, North Dakota.

The Highway Patrol says a 1995 Ford Explorer was heading north on the interstate when it went into the median and rolled several times. Both the driver and passenger were thrown from the SUV and died of their injuries at the scene.

The two women killed were a 23-year-old from Fargo and a 20-year-old from Grand Forks. The North Dakota Highway Patrol says names will be released on Thursday after families are notified.
