(Newser) – Brothers Kyle and Jeremie Foster were riding their ATVs toward a farm Friday night in North Dakota when Kyle, 43, lost control and crashed into a slough. Ten minutes later, upon arriving at the farm, Jeremie, 47, realized Kyle wasn't with him and turned around to go look for him. He wiped out and crashed into a ditch about seven miles from where his brother had crashed. In a horrifying double tragedy, Kyle was pronounced dead at the scene and Jeremie died en route to the hospital, NBC News reports. Alcohol was a factor in both crashes and neither brother was wearing a helmet, police say. Per the Pioneer Press, both accidents took place on gravel roads in a rural area. (Read more ATV stories.)
