    Construction flagger injured near Wing

    By Morgan DeVries,


    WING, ND ( KXNET ) — A construction flagger was seriously injured in a crash near Wing on Highway 14.

    According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol, a GMC Sierra, driven by an 81-year-old man, was driving north on Highway 14, while a Chevy pickup was parked on the northbound shoulder, slightly in the road, and a 71-year-old construction flagger was standing by the Chevy’s driver’s side door.

    The flagger was using a sign to slow down vehicles that were traveling south.

    A semi-truck driving north was stopping randomly to drop off hay wattles to prevent soil erosion for later construction, and the 81-year-old successfully passed the semi, slowly, but didn’t see the Chevy even though the amber lights were on.

    The 81-year-old hit the back of the Chevy, which pushed it into the 71-year-old flagger, who then ended up in the ditch.

    The 71-year-old was brought to Sanford Hospital in Bismarck with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.

    The crash is still under investigation by the NDHP.
