Two women were killed and a 3-year-old girl was seriously injured Saturday when a pickup truck smashed into the rear of their car on Interstate 94 near Valley City, the North Dakota Highway Patrol reported.

The crash occurred about 5:35 p.m. in the westbound lanes five miles east of Valley City, the patrol reported.

The driver of the car, a 58-year-old from Valley City, and a 40-year-old passenger from Fargo were dead on arrival at Mercy Hospital in Valley City, Lt. Eric Pederson of the Highway Patrol said Sunday.

The girl was taken to Mercy Hospital in Valley City and then taken by helicopter ambulance to Fargo's MeritCare Hospital, Pederson said.

Three people in the pickup were not reported injured, Pederson said. The accident report listed the driver as a 28-year-old man, and the passengers as a 23-year-old woman and a 7-month-old girl. All of them were from Neilburg, Sask., the report said.

Pederson said the names of the people involved in the accident will be released this morning.

Pederson said the car that was struck was traveling slower than normal because it was using a spare tire.

He said no charges or citations have been made, but that the accident is still under investigation.
