FARGO-A woman accused of drunken driving suffered life-threatening injuries in a car crash early this morning on Interstate 29 in Fargo, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
The collision happened about 12:30 a.m. in the center lane near the 13th Avenue overpass.
Amanda Laducer, 30, of Fargo was driving a 1999 Lexus north on I-29 when she rear-ended a 2003 Honda Accord driven by 21-year-old Madison Cutler, the patrol said.
The Honda came to rest in the right lane of northbound I-29, and the Lexus ended up in the east ditch. Both cars were totaled, the patrol said.
Laducer, who was not wearing a seat belt, was taken to Sanford Hospital with serious injuries, the patrol said. Hospital staff did not disclose her condition at the request of her family.
Cutler, who was wearing a seat belt, was not hurt in the crash. Cutler was charged with driving under suspension, the patrol said.
Laducer, who remained hospitalized shortly before noon today, was charged with driving under the influence, the patrol said.
Laducer has prior Cass County convictions for driving under the influence from 2008 and 2010, and she was convicted of driving while intoxicated in Clay County in 2007, court records show.
