By Staff | May 29, 2015

A Rugby man was killed early Sunday morning in a rollover crash near Wolford.

According to a report from the North Dakota Highway Patrol, 23-year-old Cole Hoffert was eastbound on Highway 17 at 2:30 a.m., May 24, until his Ford F350 Super Duty left the roadway and entered the north ditch. He attempted to steer right to get back on the road and overcorrected, causing his vehicle to turn over. The pickup rolled for an undetermined amount of times before coming to rest on its wheels facing south on 38th Ave. NE, 6.3 miles west of Wolford.

Hoffert was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash is still under investigation.
