The North Dakota Highway Patrol said a man was killed in a motorcycle crash on I-94 just outside of West Fargo.

It happened around 9 p.m. Tuesday night, June 28.

Troopers say the 36-year-old man was headed west, when he was thrown from the motorcycle and landed in the median.


The NDHP said the motorcycle was the only vehicle involved in the crash, but the man was not wearing a helmet at the time.

Troopers are expecting to release his name sometime Thursday evening, June 30.

Westbound I-94 was closed between West Fargo and Mapleton for more than an hour Tuesday night, as troopers investigated the crash.

GRAND FORKS — Senator Kevin Cramer made his first public appearance Tuesday, June 28, since seriously injuring his hand. The state's junior senator attended an announcement at the Grand Forks Air Force Base.

Last Wednesday a large rock rolled onto his hand as he tried to move it in the river behind his home while swimming with grandchildren.

It cut off part of his pinky finger and crushed his ring finger. His ring finger will be OK. Cramer will see his surgeon Wednesday to decide the fate of his pinky.

"(It's a)Good long-term prognosis. The worst case scenario is I lose part of my pinky, I feel fortunate," said Cramer. Full story here.
