UPDATE: Man charged with DUI after roll-over accident near Kindred
KINDRED, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Two people were taken to the hospital after a roll-over accident involving drinking and driving Wednesday night near Kindred.
It happened around 7 p.m. on 52nd St. SE.
Scott Heath, 52, was eastbound in a Chevrolet Silverado when he lost control of the vehicle and it rolled into a ditch. He and his passenger, 54-year-old Kenneth Dilley, were taken to the hospital and treated for their injuries.
In a tweet Thursday morning, North Dakota Highway Patrol says both men are alive thanks to their seatbelts. ‘2 individuals are alive because they wore theirs. The pics are the aftermath of a crash near Kindred on 9/16. If the occupants had not been belted, the survivability of this crash was low.’
Heath was charged with driving under the influence.
