Weekend crash in Ward County kills 2 teen girls

MINOT (AP) – Authorities have identified two teenage girls who died in a weekend crash in northern North Dakota’s Ward County.

The Sheriff’s Office says 16-year-old driver Julie Beaver, of Ryder, and 18-year-old passenger Ciera Rounsiville, of Minot, died at the scene.

Authorities say the vehicle they were in went out of control and rolled several times before landing on its roof in a 3-feet-deep slough. A passer-by spotted the vehicle Saturday morning.
