Three people were injured and one of them was cited for driving under the influence after a head-on collision early today on Interstate 29 just north of Gardner, N.D., the state Highway Patrol said.

Authorities received a report at 2:55 a.m. that a vehicle driven by Jacob Davis, 27, of Belcourt, N.D., was driving north in the southbound lane of I-29 near Harwood, the patrol said in a news release.

Ten minutes later, the 1996 Nissan Maxima driven by Davis crashed head-on into a 2000 Chevy SUV driven by Megan Howell, 20, of Grand Forks, N.D., the patrol said.

The car had severe front-end damage and blocked the southbound lanes of I-29. The SUV was found lying on its side in the ditch with severe front-end damage.

Davis was trapped in his car and had to be cut out by safety crews, the patrol said. He was flown to MeritCare Hospital in Fargo and arrested on suspicion of DUI, the patrol said.
