Christopher Parker Killed by 18-Wheeler Accident, 2 Injured on Highway 200 in Killdeer, ND

Killdeer, ND — There was a serious accident over the weekend that claimed the life of a local man from Lakes Stevens, WA. Police said that 24-year old Christopher Parker was killed while Tehron Davis, 34, and Travis Wilkinson, 31, were both injured when Wilkinson’s pickup truck lost control and was hit by an 18-wheeler.

The accident happened at about 1:30 p.m. last Saturday afternoon, November 29, 2014. Travis Wilkinson was driving his Dodge truck west along Highway 200, just about 2 miles east of Killdeer, when he lost control for unknown reasons.

His truck briefly swerved off the side of the highway, then went into oncoming traffic after Wilkinson over-corrected. His Dodge pickup truck was then hit by an oncoming 18-wheeler in the eastbound lanes, which killed Christopher Parker (a passenger in Wilkinson’s truck) immediately.

The accident injured both Travis Wilkinson and another passenger in his truck, Tehron Davis. Police said both Davis and Wilkinson were taken to a hospital in unknown condition.

The truck driver was identified as Michael Fideldy and his passenger was identified as Gabriel Danckert. Neither of those men were injured. Right now, the NDHP are working on figuring out what exactly caused Wilkinson to lose control of his truck that afternoon.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
