We now know the name of the Fargo man who died following a fatal two car accident Friday afternoon in Grand Forks.
62 year old Neil Little of Fargo died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash.
Police and emergency vehicles responded to the two vehicle accident around 2:30pm on Friday.
Sgt. Kevin Kallinen/Grand Forks Police: “When officers got there they determined that one man in a car was severely injured.”
The accident happened at the intersection of 14th Avenue South and South Columbia Road, where a 2004 Audi was struck on the driver's side by a 2001 Ford F-150 pickup.
Kallinen: “Altru Hospital Ambulance transported him to Altru Hospital and later he passed away at the hospital.”
The driver of the pickup truck, a thirty-four year old man of Grand Forks, was not injured. His ten year old passenger, also a Grand Forks resident was transported to Altru Hospital for treatment of injuries and released.
Friday's accident resulted in a large section of South Columbia Road being shut down for several hours.
Kallinen: “We had to shut down the entire intersection so we could process the scene."
The Audi was driving westbound from 14th Avenue when the vehicle was struck by the pickup truck traveling northbound on South Columbia Road.
Kallinen: “The theory we're working on is he was trying to cross even though you're not supposed to cross at that intersection there to go straight across. You can only take a right handed turn.”
The accident remains under investigation by the Grand Forks Police Department.
