Four people were injured, one of them seriously, when a pickup truck and SUV collided on U.S. Highway 2 Thursday afternoon.
According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, a 2009 Hyundai SUV driven by 30-year-old Richard Minton was headed north on Highway 2 around 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 11, when a 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup driven by 18-year-old Derian Sim attempted to turn left across traffic.
The Hyundai struck the front driver’s side of the Dodge, causing both vehicles to spin.
Minton, a 5-year-old boy and an 8-year-old boy all had minor injuries and were taken to CHI St. Alexius in Williston.
Laquinta Cooper, 28, was a passenger in the Hyundai and was seriously injured.
She was flown to Trinity Hospital in Minot by helicopter.
Sim was not injured. The Highway Patrol charged him with failure to yield at an intersection with a stop sign.
A two-vehicle crash on Highway 2 tied up traffic for more than an hour as emergency personnel worked to help injured passengers.
The crash happened near the intersection of Highway 2 and 58th Street NW near the Ramada.
The crash blocked the northbound lanes.
