Man killed in Williams County firework accident

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - The Williams County Sheriff's Office says an Oregon man was accidently killed lighting fireworks over the Fourth of July weekend. Sgt. Detective Caleb Fry says the body of 35-year-old Michael Cottrell was found early Saturday in the field where he was lighting off fireworks. Cottrel was dead when emergency workers arrived on scene. Fry says Cottrel was struck in the face by a firework he was lighting. The Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death accidental. The death was the second firework related incident in the area in a week. On June 30 a man was arrested in Williston after police say he opened fire in the direction of neighbors who were setting off fireworks. Two people were injured by shotgun pellets in that incident.
