FSA Fatal crash accident

One person was killed, and another seriously injured, when they were struck by an SUV Sunday evening, May 16, in Dickinson, N.D.

The incident occurred at around 6 p.m. in the 600 block of South Main Avenue.

Dillon Olheiser, 26, of Dickinson, was riding his bicycle across Main Avenue when he fell off his bike in the southbound lane of traffic, according to North Dakota Highway Patrol.

A southbound driver, Dawn Belohlavek, 55, of Mandan, ND, saw the cyclist fall and stopped her vehicle to render first aid when another vehicle, also heading southbound struck both Belohlavek and Olheiser. The 2015 Chevy Tahoe, was being driven by Dr. Dennis Wolf, 85, of Dickinson.

Belohlavek, who was giving aid to Olheiser was seriously injured in the impact and required life-flight transport to Bismarck via helicopter to treat her serious injuries. Oheiser died at the scene from his injuries.


Responding to the scene of the crash were emergency services representing the Dickinson Police Department, Stark County Sheriff's Office, Dickinson Ambulance Service and North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Sources who knew Olheiser told The Press that he suffered from a medical condition, though it is unclear whether his falling from his bike was related to a medical emergency.

Wolf retired after 52 years as coroner for Stark County in July.

Wolf has not been charged and the incident remains under investigation by the North Dakota Highway Patrol, who did not release any additional details about the deadly crash.
