Highway Patrol releases names in Cando fatal crash

CANDO, N.D. — The North Dakota Highway Patrol has released the names of a man and woman from Belcourt who were killed Tuesday after their car collided with a semi-truck about 13 miles west of Cando.

The patrol says 24-year-old Dillion Azure was driving the car east on North Dakota Highway 17 about 9 a.m. when he failed to negotiate a curve and struck the rear tires of the semi-truck with an empty hay rack trailer.

Azure and one passenger, 19-year-old Calleen Belgarde, were killed. Azure was not wearing a seatbelt and it's not known if Belgarde was. Another 19-year-old female passenger was flown to Trinity Hospital in Minot.

The truck driver was not injured.
