Minnesota Woman Killed in North Dakota Boat Crash
DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) — A boat crash on Devils Lake in northeastern North Dakota has killed a Minnesota woman and injured four other people.
Ramsey County Sheriff Steve Nelson tells KZZY radio that the crash happened about 2:45 a.m. Sunday, when a boat struck a tree about 30 yards from shore while traveling about 30 mph. It happened in the Haybale Heights Campground area.
Twenty-six-year-old April Stenger, of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, was killed.
Three other passengers in the boat were flown to a Grand Forks hospital, all with what Nelson described as critical injuries. Two were men from Devils Lake and the other a woman from Halstad, Minnesota. Altru Hospital said the woman was upgraded to satisfactory condition Monday.
The Grand Forks man driving the boat suffered injuries not considered to be life-threatening.
