Grand Forks man charged in Minot death

MINOT, N.D. — The Ward County Sheriff's Office has charged a Grand Forks man with drunken driving in the weekend death of a Canadian man at the North Dakota State Fairgrounds in Minot.

Capt. Todd Keller tells KCJB that 23-year-old Tyler Fedyk of Estevan, Saskatchewan, was a passenger on an all-terrain vehicle that overturned about 2:30 a.m. Sunday. He was pronounced dead at a Minot hospital.

The driver of the ATV, 39-year-old Wade Nygaard of Grand Forks, was citing for driving under the influence of alcohol. A telephone listing could not immediately be found for Nygaard.

Authorities say Nygaard is a race car driver who was taking part in the Motor Magic activities at the fairgrounds.
