Fargo woman injured in I-94 crash near 20th Street in Moorhead

MOORHEAD – A Fargo woman was injured in a three-car accident near here Wednesday that started when her car was rear-ended by another vehicle.

A 1992 Cadillac driven by Christopher Harden, 26, of New Town, N.D., stalled on the right shoulder of eastbound Interstate 94, the Minnesota State Patrol said.

Valerie Sepp, 33, of Fargo stopped behind his car when a third car driven by 26-year-old Emily Denny of Fargo approached.

The State Patrol said Denny didn’t immediately see the two parked cars, but when she did, she tried to avoid hitting them and failed. She rear-ended Sepp’s car, which then struck Harden’s vehicle, the patrol said.

The airbag went off in Sepp’s car and she had to be extracted from the vehicle. She was taken to Essentia Health in Fargo to be treated for injuries that were not life-threatening, the patrol said.

The incident happened about 7:25 p.m. near 20th Street in Moorhead, the patrol said.

All three involved were wearing seat belts.

The State Patrol did not report the road conditions at the time of the accident.
