Three people were injured in a two-vehicle collision on eastbound Interstate 94 on Sunday night in Morton County.
At 6:50 p.m., a 1996 Ford Explorer, which was traveling east at 60 mph, struck the rear of a 2008 Chevrolet sedan at mile marker 152.25, the Highway Patrol said in a statement. The sedan then drove into the median between a scenic overlook and the interstate, and crashed into the ditch. The Explorer overturned and righted itself on its wheels. The driver of the Explorer, who was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected during the rollover. The Explorer continued moving east toward the south ditch, as the sedan moved in a northeasterly direction from the south ditch. Both vehicles sideswiped each other in a second impact. The driver and passenger in the sedan were both injured. They had been wearing seat belts.
All three accident victims were taken to St. Alexius Medical Center by ambulance.
The Highway Patrol did not identify the drivers or passenger in its statement. The accident remains under investigation.

The 1986 Toyota 4 Runner struck a dirt embankment and rolled over.
All four teens were injured and were transported to Bismarck hospitals for treatment.
The teens had been wearing seatbelts.
The crash is still under investigation.
