FARGO — An 8-month-old girl police say was properly fastened in a car seat was spared serious injury after a two-vehicle crash in south Fargo that sent two men to the emergency room, Wednesday afternoon, July 17.
The Fargo Police Department said it responded to a report of a rollover crash near the intersection of 25th Street South and 26th Street South at about 4 p.m. A northbound Kia SUV and southbound Buick sedan collided in the southbound lanes of 25th Street South after the SUV entered oncoming traffic.
Police said the crash happened when the southbound Buick swerved left to avoid crashing into the Kia SUV traveling in oncoming traffic. The Kia SUV then attempted to swerve right and the front-end passenger sides of both vehicles struck each other. The Kia SUV then rolled over at least once before coming to rest upright, according to police.
The driver of the Kia SUV and a passenger in the Buick were brought to an emergency room at an unnamed hospital for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening, according to police.
The 8-month-old girl in the car was "properly restrained" in a car seat and didn't have any reported injuries, police said. Her mother later picked her up at the scene.
The man driving the Kia was cited for driving under suspension and reckless endangerment, police said. Authorities had not yet identified the driver Wednesday night.
