5 juveniles identified in Richland County rollover

The North Dakota State Patrol has released the names of a 17-year-old driver and his four juvenile passengers involved in a Wednesday evening rollover in Richland County.

Shane L. Eichhorn of Fairmount, N.D., was driving a Chevy Silverado on a gravel road 8 miles west of Fairmount, N.D., when he lost control and the vehicle rolled.

Eichhorn and two passengers, 12-year-old Courteny Seedorf of Bismarck and 9-year-old Dillon Bention of Fairmount, were thrown from the vehicle and taken to Fargo’s Sanford Health with non-life-threatening injuries.

Eichhorn and Seedorf were listed in satisfactory condition Wednesday at Sanford.

The two other passengers, 7-year-old Desiree Seedorf of Bismarck and 12-year-old Elizabeth Sellars of Fairmount were taken to St. Francis Medical Center in Breckinridge, Minn., where they were treated and released Wednesday.

None of the occupants were wearing seatbelts, the state patrol said.

The crash remains under investigation.
