Two Jamestown women were injured in a head-on crash near Carrington Tuesday afternoon, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
The patrol said David John Carter, 78, Elkwater, Alberta, Canada, was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Silverado pickup southbound on U.S. Highway 52 Tuesday through a construction zone en route to Fort Lincoln State Park near Mandan, N.D. At about 12:40 p.m., he crossed into the northbound lane and struck a 1991 Toyota Winnebago driven by Rita Burnelle Lulai, 69, Jamestown, en route to Minot, N.D.
The crash happened about 6 miles south of Carrington, N.D. The pickup was going about 40 mph at the time of the crash while the Winnebago was almost stopped.
Carter, Lulai and Lulai’s passenger, Angela Nording, 49, Jamestown, were injured in the crash and were taken by ambulance to Foster County Hospital, Carrington. All three were wearing seat belts.
The patrol said Carter was cited for reckless driving.
The vehicles sustained front-end damage and were towed from the scene.
