Tuesday's fatal crash on Interstate 29 near Hillsboro, N.D., should send a message to drivers, said Jim Prochniak.

"It certainly puts an exclamation point, when we're saying 'no travel advised or road closed,' we certainly do mean that," said Prochniak, a captain with the North Dakota Highway Patrol.


Interstate 29 had been closed about half an hour when Tuesday's crash occurred about 4:30 p.m.
