A two-vehicle accident near Columbia Mall sent one driver to the hospital with serious injuries.

Grand Forks Police say it happened during noon hour Wednesday at South 31st Street and 32nd Avenue South.

Authorities say a pickup pulling a trailer was in the inside westbound lane on 32nd. The pickup hit an SUV that was turning left from 32nd Avenue onto 31st Street, causing extensive damage and disabling both vehicles.

Police say the SUV was driven by an adult female who was transported by ambulance to Altru with serious injuries. The pickup driver, a 39-year-old Buxton resident, had no apparent injuries.

The names of the drivers have not been released, pending notification of relatives.

The P-D says no citations have been issued … but it appeared the SUV failed to yield the right of way when turning left at the intersection.
