GRAND FORKS COUNTY, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says distracted driving is what caused a two-vehicle crash.
Before 10:00 a.m. Friday, 25-year-old Madison Svegdahl was driving a GMC Terrain on U.S. Highway 2, 7 miles west of Grand Forks. 26-year-old Paige Brunelle was driving a Nissan Pathfinder, ahead of Svegdahl’s vehicle.

A 5-year-old passenger in one of the vehicles had minor injuries. No one else was hurt.
