A North Dakota woman was killed and two other people were injured in a traffic accident on Interstate 29 near Sloan Saturday night. A state patrol report lists the person killed as 26-year-old Karen Olson of Fargo. Olson was a front seat passenger in a car driven by 26-year-old Johsua Orr of Fargo.
Orr and a 14-year old girl from Marcus, Iowa, who was listed as a rear passenger in a semi-truck, were taken to Mercy Medical Center by Sloan Ambulance. Orr was treated and released. The teenager, who’s identity was not released, was admitted for treatment.
The patrol report says a car driven by Orr rear-ended the back of the semi-truck and came to rest in the median. The semi, driven by 43-year-old William Widener of Sylvania, Georgia, was brought to a controlled stop on the shoulder of the northbound lane.
