FARGO — A head-on crash on Interstate 29 south of Fargo left two people injured Wednesday, Jan. 12, the North Dakota Highway Patrol said in a news release.

George Carroll, 54, of Gwinner, North Dakota, lost control of a 2005 Nissan Frontier while driving north on icy roads at about 10:10 a.m. Wednesday about 7 miles south of Fargo, according to the patrol.

The pickup crossed into the southbound lanes and hit a 2017 Dodge Ram 5500 tow truck driven by Damian Barglof, a 31-year-old from West Fargo, the patrol said.
