A 58-year-old Alexander man was killed on Tuesday, Oct. 1, in a three-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 85 south of Williston.
Terry Lynn was pronounced dead at the scene at approximately 12:29 p.m. after his vehicle was sandwiched between two semi trucks.
According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, Lynn was traveling north on the highway in a GMC pickup behind a Peterbilt semi being driven by Monte Wissel, 40, of Williston, N.D. As the two vehicles slowed while entering a construction zone near the Lewis & Clark Bridge, a second semi, a Freightliner being driven by James Whitcomb, 50, of Williston, N.D., pushed Lynn’s vehicle up on the back of Wissel’s trailer.
