FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - A Fargo man died Wednesday, June 1 after a two-vehicle crash that happened on the I-29 exit ramp from I-94.

Authorities say an SUV pulling a dolly with a car on it was exiting I-94 to get onto I-29 shortly after 4:30 pm.

The vehicle stopped on the shoulder of the exit ramp after realizing there was an issue with the dolly.

The driver, 50-year-old Don Keplin of Fargo, and the passenger, 39-year-old Lucas Azure of Fargo, got out of the vehicle and stood next to it on the road.

Another car, driven by 41-year-old Shandi Cordner of Clitherall, MN then rear-ended the dolly with the car attached. This caused it to push forward, hitting Keplin and Azure.

Both men were taken to the hospital. Keplin had serious injuries and Azure later died.

Cordner was arrested for felony possession of methamphetamine. More charges could be possible.
