Idaho man faces manslaughter charge in fatal North Dakota crash

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — An arrest warrant has been issued for an Idaho man wanted for manslaughter in North Dakota.

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — An arrest warrant has been issued for an Idaho man wanted for manslaughter in North Dakota.

The charge against 57-year-old Clark Christensen, of Shelley, Idaho, stems from a May 16 crash near Minot that killed 21-year-old Megan Shoal, a Minot State University student from Plentywood, Mont.

Authorities allege that Christensen was driving a semitrailer that plowed into several vehicles stopped at a red light because the brakes were not properly maintained. Eight vehicles were damaged or destroyed.

Christensen could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Court records do not list an attorney for him. A telephone listing for him in Shelley was not in service Tuesday.
