A car and semi collided east of Watford City today killing one driver and sending the semi through a small Christian school while class was in session.

Three young children and a teacher from the Johnson Corners Christian Academy were treated and released at a hospital. The Highway Patrol said the semi was westbound on Highway 73 when a car headed south on Highway 23 failed to yield to the semi at the intersection in McKenzie County. The truck struck the car and both vehicles ran off the roadway, authorities said. The truck continued through the ditch, struck a chain link fence and entered the Christian Academy parking lot.
