FARGO, ND — Police in Fargo confirm a young biker hit by a car and dragged for a block last week has passed away in the hospital.

They told us 19-year-old Randy West of Texas died sometime on Saturday while being treated for his injuries at Sanford.

It all started around 9:15 Tuesday night when 71-year-old Theodore Kleiman of Fargo hit West at the intersection of 17th Avenue and 45th Street South.
