RUGBY, N.D. — One man suffered fatal injuries in a two-vehicle car crash on US Highway 2 near mile marker 215, about 3 miles east of Rugby on Thursday night, Oct. 6.

The man, a 53-year-old from Belvidere, New Jersey, was driving a Dodge Durango eastbound on US Highway 2 when he was struck by a Chevrolet Silverado, driven by a 15-year-old boy from Rugby, according to a release from the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The Silverado had been heading southbound. The driver had stopped at the stop sign on 33rd Avenue Northeast prior to entering the intersection of US Highway 2 and reaching the median.

When the Silverado tried to cross the eastbound lane to continue south, the vehicle struck the eastbound Durango at a right angle, the report said. The collision caused the Durango to spin, sliding into the south ditch where it began to roll.

The driver, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle and suffered fatal injuries, according to the report.

A passenger in the Durango, a 50-year-old woman from Walker, Louisiana, suffered serious injuries and was taken to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks.

The juvenile driver of the Silverado was released from the Heart of America Medical Center with minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation by the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
