One person was killed and two people were injured in a two-vehicle accident Friday afternoon, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

Kevin Tjaden was driving a 1990 Geo Storm south on 35th Ave. N.E., a rural gravel road northeast of Belcourt, N.D., when he met a 1993 Dodge Ram pickup driven by Sheldon Azure going north at a crest, according to a Patrol report. Tjaden turned east and Azure west as the drivers tried to avoid a collision. Tjaden's car struck Azure's pickup on the passenger side. Both vehicles were damaged and came to rest in the east ditch.

Jarrod Azure, a passenger in the front seat of Tjaden's car, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, according to the report. It was unclear whether he was related to Sheldon Azure.

Tjaden was taken to Presentation Medical Center in Rolla, N.D., for injuries and then transferred to Trinity Medical Center in Minot. Joshua Jeanotte was in the rear seat of Tjaden's car and taken to a hospital in Belcourt. Two passengers in Sheldon Azure's vehicle were not injured.

According to the Patrol, those involved in the accident were from the Belcourt area.
