FARGO — Two men from Detroit Lakes, Minnesota, were seriously injured when their pickup rear-ended a semi and caught fire on Interstate 94 near University Drive Friday, July 29, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
The 71-year-old male driver of a 2008 Chevrolet pickup and his 54-year-old male passenger suffered serious injuries in the crash around 3:50 p.m., the highway patrol reported.
Harwood's Brant Jacobson, 45, was driving the semi eastbound in the middle lane of I-94 when traffic started to slow due to road construction inside Moorhead. The pickup driver trailed Jacobson's semi and did not slow down in time, rear-ending the semi's trailer, the highway patrol reported.
Upon hitting the trailer, the pickup started on fire. Both of the men in the pickup were taken via FM Ambulance to Sanford hospital in Fargo, the report said. Semi driver Jacobson was not injured.
The names of the two people injured will be released Saturday, according to report.
