On behalf of the City of Carrington we offer our condolences to the family and friends of our Police Chief Brandon Sola, who died in an off duty traffic accident in Cass County.

Together we mourn his death and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

Sola was killed Tuesday, June 28 in a motorcycle crash near West Fargo. He was driving his motorcycle when he lost control; it began to wobble and he was thrown from it before it came to rest on the median shoulder, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Although the West Fargo Rural Fire Department and EMS services attempted to provide medical treatment, Sola was pronounced dead on the scene.

Sola was also a master sergeant with the North Dakota Air National Guard.
