Two people were severely injured in a crash near the Grand Forks airport on around 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 30, the North Dakota Highway Patrol said in a crash report.

Dennis Neiss, 76, of Grand Forks, was driving a 2012 Kia Sorento southbound on 17th Street Northeast. Neiss came to a stop at the stop sign, then drove through the intersection as 55-year-old Monty Cofell was traveling in a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup westbound on U.S. Highway 2, according to the NDHP. Cofell, a Gilby resident, struck the side of the Sorento in the driver’s side front in at a right angle, according to the release.

Both Dennis and Mary Neiss, the passenger in the Kia, were brought to Altru due to severe injuries from the crash, the NDHP said. Cofell suffered minor injuries from the crash.

The NDHP says Neiss is facing a charge for failure to yield at a stop sign.

The crash is still under investigation by the NDHP.
