Woman injured when vehicle rolls near 19th Ave. exit

FARGO – A West Fargo woman suffered minor injuries in a rollover crash Monday morning on Interstate 29, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

About 9 a.m., the woman was driving a 2004 Ford Explorer north on the interstate when she lost control near the 19th Avenue North exit and went into the median, patrol Sgt. Troy Hischer said.

“It probably rolled 1 1/2 times,” he said of the Explorer. “There was damage to all sides.”

The woman, 35, was taken by ambulance to Essentia Hospital. Her name was not released.

The crash was one of six that Fargo-area troopers had dealt with by 10 a.m. Five of the crashes occurred on Interstate 29, and a sixth happened on Interstate 94, near Mapleton. Aside from the West Fargo woman, no other motorists were injured, Hischer said.

A light snowfall and a rise in temperatures made for slick highways Monday morning, the sergeant said.
