(Tower City, ND) -- We're learning more about a fatal crash that happened Saturday evening near Tower City.

A woman was killed and a man and two children were badly hurt in a crash on I-94 when Troopers say the family’s SUV struck a disabled flatbed tow truck that was stopped in the lane of traffic. 43-year old Kelli Hagerott of Bismarck died at the scene.   42-year old Timothy Hagerott suffered serious injuries and is in stable condition. A 14-year old girl and a 9-year old girl are in critical condition. 

The NDHP says the driver of the flatbed called a tow truck but left the scene after getting a ride from a passing motorist, leaving his vehicle unattended. Both vehicles ended up in the ditch after Hagerott’s SUV rear-ended the flatbed.

The crash remains under investigation.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to raise funds to help the family.
