Two young children and a man were injured Friday evening in a two-vehicle crash near Grand Forks.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol responded at 5:24 p.m. Friday to the crash about 6 miles southwest of Grand Forks on 12th Avenue Northeast. Teri Dorman, 40, of Northwood, N.D., was eastbound on the road in a 2012 Chevrolet Suburban when she attempted to overtake 41-year-old Thomas Brooks of Grand Forks, who was driving a 1992 Chevrolet 3500 pickup with an unloaded flatbed trailer, according to a news release.

Just before the crash, Brook was attempting to turn left onto 18th Street Northeast, according to state troopers. Dorman hit the driver side of Brook’s pickup, sending both vehicles into the ditch, the release said.

Brooks was taken to Altru Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No one in the suburban was seriously injured or taken to the hospital, but two children in Dorman’s vehicle -- Caleb, 11, and Joshua, 4, Dorman -- reported injuries, according to state troopers.

Teri Dorman and three other children in the vehicle -- Denney Landen, 13, Issac Dorman, 13, and Abigail Dorman, 7, -- were not injured.
