Bareback rider Tucker Depew, a PRCA permit holder, 18, of Blackduck, Minn., died Jan. 10 when his Ford Explorer slid off ice-covered I-35 and plunged down an embankment, overturning several times. He was pronounced dead at the scene by Harrison County Coroner Zach Wilson. The accident occurred near the 98-mile marker, four miles north of Bethany. The ice storm caused several slide-offs over the weekend. Depew was headed to his first PRCA event – the CINCH World’s Toughest Rodeo in Des Moines, Iowa. Depew attended college at Missouri Valley in Marshall, Mo.
