Two killed in I-29 rollover near Hillsboro

HILLSBORO, N.D. - Two women were killed Wednesday afternoon in a one-vehicle rollover near Hillsboro.

A Fargo woman, 23, was driving a 1995 Ford Explorer SUV north on Interstate 29, two miles north of Hillsboro, at about 3:15 p.m. when the SUV entered the median and rolled several times. The woman and her passenger, a 20-year-old Grand Forks woman, were ejected and died at the scene from their injuries, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The roadway had ice and compacted snow, and snow was blowing across it, the patrol said in a news release.

Warming temperatures contributed to icy, slippery roads in the region.
