Area man killed in late-night tractor rollover

NEW ENGLAND — A Dickinson man was killed Friday morning in a farm-related accident, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Kyle Binstock, 29, was traveling in a 2014 Challenger tractor being driven by his cousin, Justin Binstock, 35, on 51st St. SW about 9 miles north of New England when the tractor left the roadway and entered the south ditch, where it struck a culvert and overturned.

Kyle Binstock was ejected from the tractor and died at the scene.

Justin Binstock was charged with causing the death while operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, a Class A felony, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison, a fine of $20,000, or both.

He was not injured in the crash and taken to the Southwest Multi-County Correction Center in Dickinson. Stark County State’s Attorney Tom Henning released him on his own recognizance Friday.

The crash remains under investigation by the Highway Patrol.
