The accident occurred about five miles south of Highway 10 around 4 p.m. Authorities determined that a 2007 Chevrolet van driven by Gregory Krutsinger of Fargo that was heading north crossed into the southbound land where it hit a 2002 Dodge Dakota pickup driver by Christopher Lange of Hickson, N.D. head on.

Lange's 3-year-old son was also in the pickup.

A fire ensued in the pickup, and both of the Lange's escaped. They were transported to St. Mary's Innovis in Detroit Lakes.

Krutsinger was airlifted to a Fargo hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The accident is still under investigation and alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
