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.
