20-year-old Fargo woman airlifted after I-29 rolloverGRANDIN, N.D. – A Fargo woman was injured and airlifted to a nearby hospital in a rollover crash near here on Wednesday that stopped traffic on Interstate 29 for nearly 30 minutes.
According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, Shanda Bischoff, 20, was driving northbound on I-29 near mile marker 88 at around 1:20 p.m. when her vehicle began to drift. She overcorrected and rolled her vehicle.
Sgt. Dave Wolf said the damage from the rollover pinned Bischoff inside her car, and once she was extracted, she was airlifted to a Fargo hospital. Wolf said her injuries weren’t considered life-threatening.
“She was conscious in the vehicle and alert,” he said.
Northbound I-29 traffic was blocked for about 30 minutes while the helicopter landed, Wolf said. He said road conditions were dry and clear at the time.
