West Fargo, ND – In a stunningly slow turn of events, an older West Fargo couple died while waiting for a red light to turn green.
Leth and Helt Ringgold had pulled up to a red traffic light which recently had been having some functionality “issues”.
Unfortunately for the Ringgolds, the red light took an extraordinarily long time to change to green.
By the time they finally got the signal to proceed through the intersection, both Leth and Helt Ringgold had passed on, gone bye-bye, kicked the bucket, gone upstairs, breathed their last, met their maker, checked out, bit the dust.
The West Fargo Street Department has apologized for this sad mishap and promised to check each and every traffic light to make sure something like this does not happen again.
Interestingly, both Leth Ringgold and Helt Ringgold can be re-arranged into: Long Red Light!
