Killed in the accident were Judy Cleveland, 16, of Fargo, N.D.; and Donald E. Bolstad, 22, of Moorhead, Minn. Driving the automobile was DuWayne Fuder, 20, who was injured. There were two other passengers Lois Bennett, 15, and Norine Bredeson, 16. According to the coroner��s inquest, the group was traveling home from a barn dance in Arthur, N.D.
