FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Two people were hurt, following a crash near Wahpeton, Friday.

North Dakota Highway Patrol says around 3:30 PM, a truck was travelling eastbound on Hwy 13, about 6 miles West of Wahpeton, when it failed to see a tractor pulling a grass-cutter on the same side of the road, and rear-ended the tractor.

A 5-year-old passenger in the truck was also hurt, and taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Hwy 13 was closed for about 3 hours, as crews responded to the crash.
