MN Couple Offers Reward For Crash Info

Frank Hoffman1 year ago

A Minnesota couple is offering a reward as they search for the hit-and-run truck driver suspected of causing a fatal accident that claimed the lives of their two sons.

Details of the Fatal Trucking Accident  

The West Central Tribune reports that Minnesota couple, Ray and Kathie Kvalog, who lost their two sons in a June auto accident have extended an offer of $50,000 for information regarding the wreck. The family had previously been offering $10,000 and has even had billboards put up to advertise the reward.

The wreck, which left the two Kvalog boys, Connor and Zach, dead and two friends injured, occurred on Minnesota’s I-94. Jimmy Morton, one of the survivors of the wreck, stated that a semi-truck moved into their lane as the boys were attempting to pass. Morton then said that the trailer of the semi then impacted with their vehicle.

Despite Morton’s account, authorities have been unable to identify the driver of the truck and have little information regarding the accident, and the Minnesota State Patrol’s investigation is still ongoing.
