THOMPSON, N.D. — Two people were injured in a crash east of Thompson, North Dakota on Wednesday, Aug. 31.

At around 5:11 a.m., Garland Evans III, 49 of Grand Forks, was driving a 2008 Chevrolet Impala SS from an unknown area heading toward where he lived in Grand Forks, according to a crash report from the North Dakota Highway Patrol. Evans veered slowly off into the south ditch and struck a culvert and went airborne.

Both Evans and his passenger, Sylvina Rickard, 41 of Cochrane, Ontario, suffered serious injuries. Evans was arrested for driving under the influence and taken to Altru Hospital. Rickard was also taken to Altru where she is being treated for her injuries.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
