Truck drives over tent in N.D.; 2 kids die
BOTTINEAU, N.D. — Authorities say the driver of a pickup truck killed two children and injured two other people when he drove over their tent at a northern North Dakota campground.
The Highway Patrol says the 30-year-old driver from Newburg lost control of his truck shortly after 1 a.m. Sunday while negotiating a curve in the Hahn's Bay Campground at Lake Metigoshe.
The patrol says the truck drove over the tent, killing a 5-year-old boy and a 9-year-old boy and injuring another 9-year-old boy and a man. The truck then crashed into a tree.
Twenty-eight-year-old Juan Ruiz of El Paso, Texas, was flown to a Minot hospital with what the patrol says are serious injuries. The patrol says the second 9-year-old has minor injuries. The patrol only identified Ruiz.
