OXBOW, N.D. (AP) - A 93-year-old Minnesota woman has died in a
one-vehicle rollover crash in eastern North Dakota.
The Highway Patrol says Ida Skalka of Akeley, Minn., was a
passenger in a sport-utility vehicle that had a rear tire blow out
on Interstate 29 north of Oxbow about 11 p.m. Wednesday.
The driver, Skalka's son-in-law, lost control and the vehicle
skidded, entered the ditch and rolled.
Skalka, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the SUV
and died at the scene.
The patrol says Skalka, her daughter and son-in-law were
traveling home from Nebraska when the crash occurred.
