Names released in Steele rollover; driver arrested

STEELE, N.D. – Authorities have released the names of three 19-year-old Bismarck men injured in a Friday rollover southeast of Steele.


Chad Tarno was driving west on 41st Street Southeast about 3 miles southeast of Steele around 12:30 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle, which rolled over in the south ditch, according to a release from the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The rollover threw Tyler Bonagofsky out of the car. Bonagofsky, who had been in the back seat, was transported with Tarno to Sanford Medical Center in Bismarck.

The two men weren’t wearing seatbelts. The other passenger, James Barnes, did have his seatbelt on and was also injured in the rollover.

Police arrested Tarno for driving under the suspicion of alcohol. The state highway patrol is still investigating the crash.
