    By Brendan Rodenberg,


    BISMARCK, ND (KXNET) — Two drivers and a passenger have been heavily injured after a collision led to one vehicle being engulfed in flames on the afternoon of Saturday, May 11.

    According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, at approximately 2:20 P.M, a Ram pickup was traveling Northbound on County Road 1 while a Ford G150 was headed eastbound on 77th Street Southeast. The Ford then failed to yield at the marked intersection, which caused it to strike the Ram.
