One driver was injured this morning in a two-car accident that interrupted traffic at the intersection of DeMers Avenue and South Washington Street.

Cassidy Aslakson, 18, Grand Forks, was taken to Altru Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries after the accident, which occurred at about 6:51 a.m., according to Grand Forks Police Department.

The report said Aslakson was driving a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am southbound on Washington Street, crossing the intersection, when her vehicle was struck by a 2008 Acura driven by Kevin Panico, 41, Grand Forks. The Panico vehicle was attempting to turn west onto DeMers Avenue at the time, police said.

Panico was cited for failure to yield at a controlled intersection, police said.

Neither vehicle had passengers.

Traffic was diverted from the intersection for about 20 minutes while the scene was processed, police said.
