On March 4, 2022, the couple were both going west on I-94 west of Bismarck/Mandan when a package delivery company’s semi crossed the median and struck their pickup, according to Nina Walden, the wife of the deceased.
They were both taken to a hospital in Bismarck with significant injuries. She suffered a sternum fracture as well as other injuries. Scott, on the other hand, died three weeks before their anniversary as a result of his injuries, leaving behind a bereaved wife, six children, and two grandkids.
Scott was the primary source of income for a family that is currently in financial distress. The family has set up a GoFundMe page to aid with the funeral costs.
“Thank you very much to all of the volunteers that came to our aid on that dreadful day. Thank you also to anyone who can find it in their hearts to assist us right now.” Nina Walden expressed her thoughts.
