St. George man killed in North Dakota after vehicle collides with cow

ST. GEORGE – The North Dakota Highway Patrol has identified a St. George man as one of two men who were killed after their vehicle struck a cow that was wandering on a road 12 miles east of Mandaree, North Dakota, Friday.

Jake Alexander Holm, 19, of St. George, and Kaleb Newel Steed, 27, of Mountain Home, Idaho, died Friday night after their vehicle collided with a cow, entered a ditch, and then rolled several times before landing on its wheels, North Dakota Highway Patrol Sgt. Christopher Messer said in a news release.

The two men were en route to Elmer’s Point from Skunk Bay in western North Dakota at the time of the collision.

Holm was wearing a seatbelt and Steed was not. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

      Your compassion is astounding Bobber. Condolences to both families.

    • Seriously? August 11, 2014 at 11:36 am

      I am sure his family appreciates your comment… grow a brain.

  • BOBBER August 11, 2014 at 12:45 pm

    Imagine the speed at which the cow leaped out in front of the car. Probly moved like a panther.

    • bobbersucks August 12, 2014 at 12:02 am

      I wish you were the cow they hit then you’d be dead and these 2 boys would still be alive!

  • Just Saying August 11, 2014 at 12:49 pm

    BOBBER, You are a sad example of a “human being!” People like you need to stay under their rock.

  • ok August 11, 2014 at 1:23 pm

    The names sound familiar to boys that are former flds

    • Peekay August 12, 2014 at 4:24 pm

      That’s because they were former FLDS.

      • K Holm August 14, 2014 at 2:32 pm

        I’m Jake’s cousin. He is not former flds. Our older relatives were.

    Oh well, at least there will be less people over-populating this … little town. Hopefully he was a mormon because the only good mormon is …

      EDITOR: Take some responsibility and get rid of this comment! You are publishing threatening hate speech. And of course Reggin is the one who needs to be forcefully re-educated.

    • bobbersucks August 12, 2014 at 12:04 am

      scum bags like yourself need to just move then the town will be smaller and better off!

  • Hurtssomuch August 11, 2014 at 3:13 pm

    That was my family and yes one of the boys was former flds, the other was not. One was also expecting his first child, a baby girl due on Christmas day. Any prayers for the young mother are deeply appreciated.
    “Bobber” you’re a douche. Go “bob” around somewhere else, your ignorant sarcasm isn’t welcome here.…

  • lisakaye August 11, 2014 at 6:08 pm

    I am hoping that someone who reads this message will be able to help me out. Myself and my son, were the individuals who came upon the accident friday night. I am looking for a picture of Jake Holm and Kaleb Steed. As I know this might be selfish on my part – but I need a picture to remember them as who they were vs. the site i saw Friday night. If you can help me out – please send to my email address: lisakaye@ndsupernet.com. Thank you and god bless to his family.

    • BOBBER August 12, 2014 at 10:18 am

      Trust me buddy, it’s gonna take a lot more than a photo to get that imagery out of your head. We’re talking years of therapy…

      • wowjustwow August 12, 2014 at 5:19 pm

        Wow I cant believe some of the comments that are being posted under this article. What a horrible loss of life at such a young age. My heart goes out to all the loved ones affected by this tragedy. And to the a**holes who having nothing better to do then harass grieving people remember although I don’t wish any ill will upon you, life has a funny way of putting the shoe on the other foot. So maybe you should consider “Treating people the way you would want to be treated.” and have some compassion for the people affect.

    • Andy August 12, 2014 at 8:57 pm

      Thank you for your compassion. I can’t help with the photos, but wish you and your son the best.

  • Travis August 11, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    Sad news. I’m in minot north dakota but from page az. My condolences to the family of both individuals.

  • swimswim August 11, 2014 at 8:49 pm

    I think the comment boards need to be removed for awhile until those who only have rude things to say find somewhere else to use their time. It’s far too sad the comments that have been put out there lately. Where is our compassion St George??

  • Doug Bringhurst August 12, 2014 at 9:45 am

    Ya think of all of Steeds wife’s that are grieving, who is going to support them now… oh wait the state welfare already is.

    Does anyone else think this Kimberly Scott is hot or is it just me!!!

    • BOBBER August 12, 2014 at 10:24 am

    Driving fast on rural roads is a killer. Take your time and enjoy the scenery.

  • This CAN'T have happened! August 12, 2014 at 2:03 pm

    My heart is breaking over these 2 young men’s deaths. I knew Kaleb when he was a boy and what a wonderful boy he was. I more than likely knew Jacob too but, for the life of me I can’t place his face.
    The difference between these young men and the rabble that has posted negative crap is night and day. Needless to say you rabble are the darkness of the pit of hell.

    Some people are just too ignorant to comprehend the fact that two lives were lost in this tragic accident! I am praying for their loved ones!

    I just have to say how sad it is you people believe such nonsense. i know this man personally, he was a FORMER flds, so there won’t be any need for your welfare/many wives comment. go educate yourself.
    this is sad and tragic, they were too young to go, it is truly heartbreaking.

  • Lb August 14, 2014 at 10:33 am

    Some of these comments are very disturbing to me, I feel bad you carry so much hate for people different from yourselves . Perhaps a good shrink is in order

  • Palm August 14, 2014 at 7:27 pm

    Jake was one of my son’s best friends! He was such a caring and respectful young man! That people can post such hateful statements about people they don’t even know makes me sick! He will be greatly missed by all that knew him. My heart goes out to his family and all of his friends. The comments on this site should be monitored! Losing your son is devastating without the snide comments!

  • El Heffer September 16, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    My calf was killed and nobody cares about that? Why didn’t they mooooooove out of the way. Go ahead and eat your steaks with total disregard of how us cows feel. He shouldn’t have been playing …* and focus on the road instead. I know they looked like hamburger after the wreck but we are hamburger. Lawsuit I say… Lawsuit! (Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing… All you people that are putting someone down for saying what they want can …*. Mooooooooooove next time

    Humor is solice to the soul, and it gows hand in hand with solice and compassion. Without humor and mirth, you are mere zombies without the spirit of life. No comment meant ill will. They are the manifestations of the spirit of life.
