ANAMOOSE — The North Dakota Highway Patrol says that two men were severely injured in a T-bone crash near Anamoose early Sunday afternoon.

According to the NDHP, a semi, being driven by a 49-year-old man, was traveling east on US-52. As he approached the intersection of ND-14, near Anamoose, a pickup, being driven by a 21-year-old man with a 17-year-old man as a passenger, coming north on ND-14, failed to stop or yield at a stop sign. The driver of the semi swerved to avoid a collision but struck the left side of the pickup near the driver’s door hinge.

The driver of the semi reported his cruise control was set at 65 miles per hour at the time of the
crash with no time to brake. The impact pushed the pickup into the ditch to the southeast of
the intersection.

Neither occupant in the pickup was wearing a seat belt and both were ejected. The semi sustained disabling damage to the front right, causing it to drive to the right, into a slough, and submerged to the bottom of the windows.

The driver of the semi was not injured. The occupants of the pickup were transported to St.
Aloisius Hospital in Harvey. From there they were airlifted to Minot Trinity Hospital. Both occupants of the pickup are in stable but critical condition.

Highway 52 was closed from mile marker 145 to 154 for about 6 ½ hours. Traffic was rerouted during the closure. ND-52 is currently open.

This crash is under investigation by the Highway Patrol.
