MINOT — A 36-year-old man has died after being struck by a Hummer on Sunday, Aug. 7, about 7 miles south of Minot.

The Hummer, driven by Yvonne Wollemann, 58, of Watford City, was northbound in the left lane of U.S. Highway 83 when it came upon a person in the middle of the lane, according to a release from the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Wollemann could not avoid striking the pedestrian, Ryne Allen Darvis, of Plentywood, Montana, the release said. Darvis came to rest along the center median and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Hummer stopped on the shoulder. No injuries were listed for Wollemann and her passenger, Wilder Alvarado, 41, of Los Angeles, California, who were both wearing seat belts.

No charges are expected against Wollemann, according to the report, although the crash is under investigation.

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.
