EMERADO, ND — A driver was hospitalized after a crash near Emerado on Tuesday, July 9, around 4 p.m.

A 23-year-old woman from Emerado, North Dakota, was driving her Ford LT8000 eastbound on U.S. Highway 2 when she slowed to make a right turn off the road near mile marker 346, just three miles east of Emerado.

She was struck by a Chevrolet Silverado driven by a 32-year-old Larimore man when the Silverado crashed into the rear bumper of the Ford.

The impact caused the southbound Chevrolet to land in the center ditch and the Ford to land in the right, eastbound lane.

The driver of the Ford was uninjured. She was wearing a seatbelt.

However, the driver of the Chevrolet suffered serious injuries in the accident and was not wearing a seatbelt. He was taken to the local hospital by ambulance.
