Two people were injured in two-vehicle accident Sunday evening along U.S. Highway 2 near Turtle River State Park, west of Grand Forks.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol reports that Timothy McGurran, 66, Grand Forks, was operating a vehicle that was exiting the Turtle River park and attempting to cross the westbound lanes of Highway 2 at 7:06 p.m., when the vehicle was struck by a westbound vehicle operated by Aaron Nelson, 42, Minot.

McGurran's vehicle, a 2004 Ford Freestar minivan, entered the highway median after impact and rotated clockwise before coming to rest facing north. Nelson's vehicle, a 2001 Dodge Ram, came to rest on the highway median crossover, facing south.

McGurran was listed in serious condition Tuesday afternoon at Altru Hospital, according to a hospital spokesperson.

Keith Haus, 43, Arvilla, N.D., a passenger in the McGurran vehicle, was treated at Altru and released.
