REYNOLDS, N.D. — High winds caused separate crashes on Interstate 29 on Wednesday, May 18, near Reynolds.

According to a report from the North Dakota Highway Patrol, both vehicles were traveling north at approximately 2 p.m. on I-29 when high winds associated with a fast-moving storm caused them to tip onto their sides.

One of the vehicles was a 2008 Dodge Ram pulling an RV. The driver, Kelly Koch, 39, of Edmonton, Alberta, was wearing his seat belt and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The other vehicle was a 2012 Peterbilt semi, pulling an empty trailer. The driver, Ralph Shumaker, 55, of Nevada, Missouri, was wearing his seat belt and was not injured.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
