Two men travelling south of Manning were pronounced dead after their vehicle rolled into a ravine Dec. 25, according to a report from the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Carl Jeffery Faber, 23, of Bozeman, Mont., Van Dale Johnson, 36, of Arvin, Calif., and Jose Bojorquez, 24, of Bakersfield, Calif., were travelling on 14th Street SW, about four miles southwest of Manning in Dunn County, when Faber, the vehicle’s driver, failed to negotiate a turn, according to the report. The vehicle, a 2014 Chevrolet 2500, subsequently drove off the west side of a curve in the road and rolled down a ravine, landing on its roof.

Faber and Johnson were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency responders. Bojorquez was transported by Killdeer Ambulance to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Dickinson.

Passengers Bojborquez and Johnson were wearing a safety belt at the time of the crash, but Faber had no restraints and air bags did not deploy, according to the highway patrol.

Bojborquez was hospitalized for minor injuries.

The Highway Patrol’s report indicated that the weather conditions were clear and cold and the gravel the vehicle travelled on was dry. The Highway Patrol responded to the scene in conjunction with the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office.
