People in a vehicle traveling north on Interstate 29 near Buxton, N.D., on Wednesday afternoon called law enforcement to report the back window of their vehicle had been shot out.

Chief Deputy Steve Hunt of the Traill County Sheriff's Department said the investigation is not complete and it's not clear what may have happened.

"There was a broken window," Hunt said today. "At this point, I can't say what caused the broken window. We don't have all the answers yet."

Hunt is acting sheriff while Sheriff Mike Crocker recovers from injuries he suffered during a traffic accident Tuesday on I-29 during the blizzard. Crocker remains in Meritcare Hospital in Fargo. Hospitals officials said Wednesday that he was listed in satisfactory condition. A South Dakota woman was killed in the accident.

The people in the vehicle Wednesday that got its window broken gave investigators information about two other vehicles traveling toward Grand Forks they suspected were involved in their window being broken. The two vehicles are owned by residents of Grand Forks.

Hunt said about noon today he expected to have more information about the incident later today.

The Grand Forks Herald and The Forum are both owned by Forum Communications Co.
