MOORHEAD - The parents of two Moorhead teenagers who were killed in a June car accident near Fergus Falls are turning to the public for help.
Ray and Kathie Kvalvog, parents of Park Christian School students Zach and Connor Kvalvog, are offering a $10,000 reward for more information in connection with the June 23 crash.
Billboards advertising the reward will soon go up along Interstate 94 near Moorhead and near the Dalton crash site.
The reward is being offered for any information on a semi-truck believed to be involved in the accident.
The Minnesota State Patrol has said a semi was driving “extremely close” to the Kvalvog truck as it drove eastbound on the interstate. The Kvalvog truck then hit the shoulder on the north side of the road, overcorrected and rolled into the median. The driver, 18-year-old Zach, and his brother, 14-year-old Connor, were killed and two passengers were injured. The four were headed to a basketball camp in Wisconsin. The billboard asks for help in finding the semi that, in the couple’s words, “pushed our beloved sons off the road.”
The Minnesota State Patrol is still investigating the crash. Ray Kvalvog has said the Dodge Ram his boys were in had a steering defect that the truck’s manufacturer failed to tell him about.
The steering defect led to Fiat Chrysler agreeing to buying back of thousands of the models.
“If that truck was not wrecked, as it is now, it would be part of the recall,” Ray Kvalvog told The Forum last month. “Thirty-some days too late for my boys.”
