BISMARCK — A three-vehicle crash on the Grant Marsh Bridge between Bismarck and Mandan sent four victims to the hospital and diverted traffic for an hour at approximately 4 p.m., Sunday, July 26.
A 1979 Dodge pick-up truck driven by an 18-year-old Mandan man was traveling east on Interstate 94 on the bridge. The truck stalled and came to a stop on the eastbound bridge deck. A 2018 Chevrolet Impala driving behind the truck slowed down to change lanes, but a 2009 Ford F-150 rear-ended the Impala, which then rear-ended the Dodge.
The three vehicles came to a rest, blocking the eastbound roadway.
Eastbound traffic was diverted to the Bismarck Expressway for a time but the Grant Marsh Bridge is now open.
A 22-year-old Newport, Wash. man driving the F-150, a 22-year-old Mandan man in the Impala and the Dodge driver from Mandan suffered minor injuries. The 20-year-old Mandan woman driving the Impala suffered injuries that weren’t life-threatening. All four were transported via ambulance to Sanford Hospital. Names of those victims were not released Sunday night.
The Burleigh and Morton County Sheriff's Offices, Metro Ambulance Service and Bismarck and Mandan Fire Departments responded to the scene.
The North Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating the crash.
