Crash near Fallon kills North Dakotan
FALLON (AP) - A North Dakota man has died from injuries suffered in a weekend crash in Prairie County.
The Montana Highway Patrol says 51-year-old Charles Luedtke of the Bismarck-Mandan area of North Dakota was a passenger in a car that went off a gravel road four miles south of Fallon on Saturday. The patrol says the driver lost control of the car on a turn.
Neither Luedtke nor the driver, 49-year-old Daniel Beelmann, used a seat belt.
Luedtke was flown to a hospital in Bismarck and died there on Monday. Beelmann, also from the Bismarck-Mandan area, was taken to a Billings hospital.
The crash remains under investigation.
