A Dickinson man was injured in a rear-end crash involving four men about a mile south of Watford City Tuesday afternoon.

Dale Lantz, 61, of Dickinson was traveling south on Highway 85 about a mile south of Watford City at about 45 mph when he was rear-ended upon slowing down for a vehicle ahead of him that was turning, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.


Bryan Pierson, 28, Vernal, Utah was the driver of the vehicle that ran into him. He was traveling at an unknown speed.

Pierson had two passengers, Tyler Holmes, 20, Vernal, and Kenneth Moore, 47, of Bena, Minn.

Lantz's vehicle crossed the northbound lane, entered the ditch and overturned. Pierson's vehicle also ended up in the ditch.

Both vehicles sustained severe damage.

All four were wearing seatbelts.
