One Injured in Traffic Pole Crash in Grand Forks
A two car accident at a busy Grand Forks intersection sends one person to the hospital after one vehicle crashes into the traffic lights.
Police say 37-year-old Melissa Gardner ran through the traffic light at the intersection of 4th Avenue South and Belmont Road with her van and crashed into another van being driven by 30-year-old Hepzibah Nelson.
Nelson then ran up on the curb, hit the traffic light pole and crashed into a tree.
Nelson’s passenger was taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.
Gardner was given a ticket for running the light.
City workers put up stop signs at the intersection until the traffic light can be fixed.
