Dordt University student-athlete, twin brother die in car accident

SIOUX CENTER, Iowa (KTIV) –  Dordt University in Sioux Center, Iowa, is mourning the tragic death of one of their student-athletes.

Twenty-year-old David Temte and his twin brother Ben were both killed in a car accident on Monday morning in Montana.

David Temte had just finished a very successful season with the Dordt track team.

He and his brother were coming back to their home in Bloomington, Minnesota, after a two-week Western trip.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the Temte’s car went off the road and hit a guardrail, before colliding with a car driven by a 66-year-old Montana woman.

David majored in communication at Dordt, and he had a minor in human resources.

He was a resident assistant in North Hall at Dordt.
