Richland County, ND (WDAY TV) - Because so many people were involved in the accident, help from a number of surrounding communities all came.

Three different fire departments and six ambulance services responded to the scene of the accident.

David Todd says they were there in about 15 minutes, and some came all the way from Fargo.

Where responders from F-M Ambulance say it's very rare they have such a large scale crash out of town that requires their help.

Don Martin- F-M Ambulance Operations Manager: “They're few and far between to get called out to what we call mutual aid; out in either the county or even within a metro. It doesn't mean that it could never happen. That's one thing in public safety that we're always training for is to respond to a big incident.”

The highway patrol says they did not find any alcohol factors or signs of impairment, and they do not believe excessive speeds played a role.
