Fargo Mulled Lower Speed Limit on Road Before Fatal Crash

January 21, 2009

Records show Fargo officials considered a lower speed limit on a stretch of road the day before a crash there killed an 8-year-old girl.

The Forum said it got copies of e-mails and transcripts provided by the city to Norm Anderson. The former federal prosecutor has been hired to investigate the Dec. crash that killed 8-year-old Amanda Leininger of Fargo. She was a passenger in a car that collided with another vehicle.

Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker has said police reports indicate a rut on the edge of the road likely played a role in the crash.

The city asked Anderson to investigate when city workers found out about the rut and how they responded. City officials have said a crew was en route to repair the rut when the crash occurred.
