(Bismarck Tribune) A man prominent in the North Dakota cattle industry was killed Tuesday along with his young son as the family returned from a surgery to remove a tumor from the boy’s brain.

Jack Reich, 43, of rural Zap, a longtime official with the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association, and his son, Vander, 10, were both killed, and Mardee Reich, 39, was in serious condition following a head-on collision on a wet road about 25 miles from the Mayo Clinic at Rochester, Minn., early Tuesday evening.

The Minnesota State Patrol said the driver of the other colliding vehicle also was killed.
