DILWORTH — Three people were brought to the hospital after police say a speeding car failed to stop at a red light and crashed into an SUV at an intersection on the Dilworth-Moorhead border Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 19.
At around 2:30 p.m., a blue sedan was headed west on Highway 10 faster than the posted speed limit of 45 mph, according to Dilworth Police Chief Ty Sharpe. The car struck the left side of a black Range Rover headed south on 34th Street after going through a red light at the highway's intersection with the street, Sharpe said. Police did not say exactly how fast the car was traveling.
The driver and passenger in the blue car and the driver of the Range Rover had injuries that were not life-threatening, according to police. All three were taken by ambulance to local hospitals for treatment.
The blue car, which had severe damage to its front end and appeared to have deployed air bags, could be seen getting hooked up to a tow truck at around 3 p.m. as fire crews continued to work the scene.
Sharpe said he expects the driver of the blue car to be cited for reckless driving, failing to stop at a red light and causing an accident that resulted in injury.
