One of drivers in fatal semi crash south of Valley City identified

VALLEY CITY, N.D. – The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified one of the two men killed in a two-semi crash near here Wednesday morning as Allen Tofsrud, 46, of Leeds.

Tofsrud’s semi collided at an angle with another driver’s semi at the intersection of Highways 1 and 46 about 9 a.m. Wednesday about 20 miles south of Valley City, said Highway Patrol Sgt. Tom Herzig.

The eastbound semi on Highway 46 missed a stop sign at the intersection and hit the other semi, which was northbound on Highway 1.

Both trucks were totaled, and came to rest in the northeast ditch of the interchange. Both men were dead at the scene of the crash.

Herzig said the name of the second driver is still being withheld as the investigation continues.
