Boy’s memorial had great turnout, mother says

FARGO – The mother of a 17-year-old boy who died in a car accident two years ago said the second annual memorial in his honor had an “amazing” turnout.

Michelle Tweten, of Fargo, whose son Tyler died in a north Fargo car accident in 2010, said around 180 people showed up for the second annual Tyler Scott Tweten Memorial Tribute Safety Cruz on Thursday evening.

Tweten also said billboards were in place to remind people of the event and of Tyler’s tragic accident. They read: “Remember, no matter how you cruise, cruise safely. Tyler Tweten: innocent, wonderful and gone forever.”

The signs were placed all over Fargo, including outside Doolittle’s Woodfire Grill and at 25th Street and Main Avenue, she said.

“I wanted to thank Newman advertisements for the billboards, and K-Mart for the use of the parking lot,” Tweten said on Friday evening. “And Sign Pros for the decals and of course friends and the family.”

Tweten said no decisions have been made about whether or not there will be a cruise next year.
