KINDRED, N.D. — A Moorhead woman and Sargent County, N.D., man were hurt in a fiery head-on crash near Kindred Tuesday evening, Jan. 12, authorities said.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol said Tuesday night that a 1996 Ford Thunderbird driven by 45-year-old Kandyce Blumhagen of Moorhead and a 2000 Jeep Cherokee driven by a 69-year-old Alan Peterson of Forman, N.D., hit head-on about 5:45 p.m. 6 miles west of Kindred on North Dakota Highway 46.
