GRAND FORKS — Walsh County Sheriff Lauren Wild was stranded along Interstate 29 east of Grafton for about six hours during a blizzard Monday night while attempting to rescue a pair of travelers.
It took two snowplows, clearing a 25-mile path from Grand Forks to Exit 172 and back, to get Wild and the stranded travelers to safety.
Wild responded to the initial call late Monday afternoon, trying to reach them in his four-wheel-drive vehicle.
