WEST FARGO, N.D. — Three people were taken to Sanford after a driver hydroplaned on I-94 and hit an overhead sign support in the median.

He had his cruise control on at about 75 miles per hour when he encountered heavy rain.
Jorgensen along with 54-year-old Josephine Jorgensen, also of Hope, and 77-year-old Ruth Berger of Valley City, were taken to the hospital with injuries.
All three were wearing their seat belts.
