Driver arrested on suspicion of DUI after two seriously hurt in south Fargo crash

The driver of a car was arrested and two of his passengers were seriously injured in a south Fargo crash early Friday, police said.

Officers were called at 2:09 a.m. to Woodbury Park Drive near the intersection of Interstates 29 and 94 and found a vehicle flipped over on its side, Sgt. Bill Ahlfeldt said.

The vehicle apparently was traveling southbound at a high rate of speed when it struck a fence, a tree and a large stone sign at the entrance of the Woodbury Park development, he said.

“It completely demolished that stone sign,” Ahlfeldt said.

Three passengers found at the scene were taken to Essentia Health for treatment. Two sustained serious injuries not believed to be life-threatening, and the other had minor injuries, Ahlfeldt said.

The driver, Adam Harildstad, 21, of Fargo, allegedly fled the scene, Ahlfeldt said. Police found him in a nearby backyard and later arrested him on suspicion of DUI, leaving the scene of an injury accident and resisting police officers. He sustained minor injuries.
