A 20-year-old LaMoure, N.D., man died in a car crash Saturday afternoon south of Jamestown, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
The patrol said Milton Snow, 75, Jamestown, was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Trailblazer southbound on U.S. Highway 281 Saturday. At about 2:30 p.m., the vehicle slowed and stopped to turn left about 2 miles south of Jamestown.
A 2003 GMC Yukon driven by Michael Senger, 17, Edgeley, N.D., was southbound behind the Trailblazer. The Yukon struck the Trailblazer’s right-rear corner, slid into the west ditch, rolled several times and came to rest in the ditch. The Trailblazer was pushed into the east ditch.
Senger and the Yukon’s two passengers, Fredrick Nannenga III, 20, LaMoure, and Casey Cofell, 21, Berlin, N.D., were ejected during the crash. Nannenga was killed at the scene and Senger and Cofell suffered injuries and were taken by ambulance to Jamestown Regional Medical Center. They were then taken by air ambulance to Sanford, Fargo. They were not wearing seat belts.
Snow was not injured. He was wearing a seat belt.
The Yukon was totaled in the crash and the Trailblazer sustained $6,000 damage.
The patrol, Stutsman County Sheriff’s Office, Jamestown Rural Fire Department and Jamestown Ambulance responded to the crash.
