FORDVILLE, N.D. — One person was taken to the hospital early Saturday morning with serious injuries after driving onto a washed out road southwest of here.

Sgt. Christopher Schaefer of the North Dakota Highway Patrol says ND Highway 32 between US Highway 2 and ND Highway 17 washed out near mile marker 175 due to flooding from heavy rains that hit the region Friday night.

Upon initial reports of the road hazard, a vehicle entered the washout, the driver sustained serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks. The name of the driver and a condition are not being released at this time.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation and the North Dakota Highway Patrol have now closed ND Highway 32 at mile point 175, nine miles north of US Highway 2. The highway remains washed out and impassable due to the damage from the storm. Motorists will need to use an alternate route.

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.
