Accidents

If anyone is traveling on highway 2, there is a bad situation near the Palermo turn off. Use extreme caution approaching that area. I believe both lanes are currently closed.

Also, highway 83 south bound lane 1/4 mile north of the junction of 23 there was another bad accident this morning.

Holy shnikees.....that looks terrible. What happened? Hate hearing about these accidents out west. Be safe out there everyone.

 They will have to do some repair on the asphalt as that will burn also.

Thoughts and prayers out to the families!

I've heard reports of up to 12 vehicles in the accident and 6 fatalities so far.. not sure on those reports but that is what is being said.. we'll have to wait for more facts to come out...  there was an Air Medic Chopper that flew in here ..from the west..  so they are air lifting people out..  traffic is backed up still..

That just makes me sick to my stomach. I drive through there at the time of accident most days of the week, just not today. My deepest sympathies to the families of the ones involved.

Does anyone know if there was thick fog in the area when this happened? It was so thick in the Minot area this morning. Had three different incidents of people pulling out in front of me like they didn't even see me coming even with my headlights on this morning on hiway 2 between Burlington and Minot.

STANLEY, N.D. — Authorities near Stanley say they're battling flames from a fiery crash involving two semi-trucks and three pickup-trucks.

North Dakota Highway Patrol Capt. Gary Orluck says that crews are assuming multiple victims at the Friday morning crash along U.S. Highway 2 about three miles east of Stanley.

Orluck says heavy fog that greatly reduced visibility in the area was a major contributor to the crash.

Traffic is again flowing after crews set up a detour to alleviate a significant backlog.

Authorities say more information will be available after oil from a tanker completely burns off.

Well when I left home I can see about 50 feet in front of me and I was being passed by people like crazy that had to of been going 65-70 mph. They're driving completely blind and have accepted the probability that if someone pulls out in front of them they're likely going to kill them.
I can't understand it......

visibility at that time was probably 75 feet or less. The fog was so thick!   Thats the road that takes you into the EOG man camp and then its the road that the semi's take when they haul crude to the Railroad oil loading facility ne of Stanley...  must of been trying to cross the highway in the fog...

When is the last time you heard of an oil company say "take your time, be careful". Not very likely. "Money, money, money...faster, faster, faster". The oil companies have to realize this oil isn't going anywhere, slow down a bit. Or a LOT. The great people of ND would appreciate it.
RIP to all involved in the crashes. Prayers

Have hauled many loads into EOG, at that spot is at a the bottom of a long down hill slope on the highway.Lots of traffic in that area,have traveled on highway 2 west to tioga and back to Minot for 0ver 5 years and consider myself lucky not to have been in a accident.But out of all the weather conditions ive drove in.Fog is the most dangerous,2nd is somebody driving in the east bound lane heading west,this has happen twice...

That is simply not true and is not an accurate reflection of the vast majority of the oilfield companies working out there.

Is it impious to weigh goose music and art in the same scales? I think not, because the true hunter is merely a noncreative artist. Who painted the first picture on a bone in the caves of France? A hunter. Who alone in our modern life so thrills to the sight of living beauty that he will endure hunger and thirst and cold to feed his eye upon it? The hunter. Who wrote the great hunter's poem about the sheer wonder of the wind, the hail, and the snow, the stars, the lightnings, and the clouds, the lion, the deer, and the wild goat, the raven, the hawk, and the eagle, and above all the eulogy to the horse? Job, one of the great dramatic artists of all time. Poets sing and hunters scale the mountains primarily for one and the same reason--the thrill of beauty. Critics write and hunters outwit their game primarily for one and the same reason--to reduce that beauty to possession. The differences are largely matters of degree, consciousness, and that sly arbiter of the classification of human activities, language. If, then, we can live without goose music, we may as well do away with stars, or sunsets, or Iliads. But the point is we would be fools to do away with any of them.

Im sure the oil companies would rather have their drivers not getting in accidents then have lawsuits on their hands.  Some of the drivers are just plain idiots.

Do you think the families of the fatal victims would want you IDIOTS to post pictures of fatal crashes for everyone to see??  Have a clue and think before you start posting pictures on the internet.  Better yet, don't even take pictures at all of these crash scenes!!

 Tyler was a great kid. His family still resides here in Bowman County . Prayers to them, and all the families who lost.

Sometimes I aim to please, but mostly I just shoot to kill !
