He was confirmed dead through a publication made by Bronc Riding Nation on Tuesday that says “The Ashland community and all over Bronc Riding Nation, hearts are heavy at the loss of this kind soul, 19 year old Josiah Middle Rider”. A fatal accident occurred in the early hours of Monday morning near Broadus on U.S. Highway 212, resulting in the death of an Ashland resident.
How did the accident happen?
The driver, operating a Ford F250, lost control of the vehicle while traveling west on Highway 212 at approximately 3:27 a.m. A 20-year-old passenger from Ekalaka was also injured in the incident and subsequently transported to a hospital in Rapid City, South Dakota. According to the Montana Highway Patrol, the truck initially veered off the right side of the road before abruptly returning to the pavement and crossing the center line. Shortly after, it veered to the right again, colliding with the ditch along the highway and ultimately overturning.
The truck came to a stop upright on its wheels. Notably, there were no other vehicles involved in the accident, and the Montana Highway Patrol suggested that excessive speed may have been a contributing factor. Furthermore, neither the driver nor the passenger had fastened their seatbelts. Josiah Middle Rider was pronounced dead at the scene while the other injured victim was transported to a hospital in Rapid City.
