ECKELSON, N.D. — Two males traveling on separate ATVs, left Sanborn at about 7:10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, and crashed in separate incidents around 7:30 and 7:40 p.m., both resulting in fatality.
Kyle Foster, 43, and Jeremie Foster, 47, were each driving a 2014 Arctic Cat ATV while traveling to a rural farm north of Eckelson. While traveling westbound on 27th Street SE, Kyle Foster, of Tuscon, Ariz., lost control, rolling his four-wheeler into a slough on the south side of the gravel road between 106th and 107th Ave SE, which is about six miles northeast of Eckelson.
Jeremie Foster, of Fargo, was traveling ahead of the other ATV and made it to the farm. He then began to retrace his path from Sanborn to locate the other vehicle. While doing so, he was traveling north on 103rd Ave SE, lost control and rolled into the west ditch of the gravel road between 29th and 30th Street SE.
Kyle Foster was pronounced dead at the scene, while Jeremie Foster was pronounced dead in route to Mercy Hospital.
Both individuals were not wearing helmets, and alcohol is a factor in both incidents. Weather conditions were dry. The crashes remain under investigation by the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
