Authorities say 21-year-old Desiree Dawn Jansen died at the scene and 19-year-old Miranda Irene Jansen died several hours later at a hospital in North Dakota. Police say the two women were not wearing seatbelts and were thrown from the vehicle.

Police say 55-year-old Marie Cody Jansen was driving and was transported to a hospital in North Dakota in serious condition. Police say she was wearing a seatbelt.
