Two drivers were injured in a two-car crash Friday in Mckenzie County, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred at 1:50 p.m., when a 2001 Honda Civic that was northbound on U.S. Highway 85 attempted a U-turn into the southbound lane about 5 miiles south of Watford City, N.D., the patrol said. The Honda failed to yield to a northbound 2010 Pontiac G6 and was struck by the car on the left side, sending both cars into the ditch.
