Two people went to the hospital in one of two crashes Tuesday at the same Bismarck intersection.

Police reported that around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, 39-year-old John Schmiel, of Underwood, was southbound on South Seventh Street when he broadsided 37-year-old Jamie Kahl, of Bismarck, who was westbound on Front Avenue.

Schmiel and his passenger, 21-year-old Janessa Bonn, of Washburn, were taken to a hospital for injuries. Kahl had no injuries.

Schmiel's vehicle had damage to its front bumper, grill, engine and hood. Kahl's vehicle sustained damage to its passenger side, rear door and fender.

Later that day, 56-year-old William Robinson, of Mandan, and 45-year-old Daniel Steidl, of Bismarck, collided in the intersection.

Robinson was westbound on Front Avenue and Steidl was southbound on Seventh Street when Robinson ran into the left rear of Steidl, who continued on and struck a light pole.

Neither man was injured. Steidl was cited $20. His vehicle sustained heavy, disabling rear end damage.

Robinson's vehicle incurred heavy front end damage, including its bumper, hood and possible internal damage.

Steidl's car was towed away. A light pole sustained minor scuffing.
