STIRUM, N.D. - The North Dakota Highway Patrol has released the name of the West Fargo teen killed in a head-on crash with an off-road vehicle over the weekend.

Zane Buchholz, 19, died from injuries he suffered when his Honda dirt bike collided with a Polaris Ranger UTV at 11:30 p.m. Saturday, July 29.

The Polaris driver told authorities he couldn't see Buchholz because the bike was not equipped with a headlight, the patrol said Monday, July 31, in a news release. Buchholz's speed is unknown, but the Polaris was clocked at about 40 mph, the patrol said.

Buchholz was taken to the Oakes Community Hospital where he later died. The Polaris driver, Clayton Hoffman, 56, of Oakes, N.D., was arrested, and charges are pending, the patrol said, adding that alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Hoffman and his passenger were not hurt. No one involved was wearing a seat belt, the patrol said.

Buchholz's visitation will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 10, at Grace Lutheran Church in Oakes, followed by a memorial at 2 p.m. He will be buried at the Casselton (N.D.) Cemetery.
