A 17-year-old Dickinson resident died in a three-vehicle accident after going through a red light on Highway 22 in Dickinson this morning, according law enforcement.

A Hummer, driven by Catherine Riddick of Dickinson, was traveling west on 15th Street North and a Ford pickup, driven by John Barrett of Westminster, Colo. was headed east on 15th Street North and was waiting in the intersection at Third Avenue West (Highway 22) to turn north, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.

A Pontiac, driven by a 17-year-old, was traveling south on Third Avenue West and went through a red light, striking Riddick's Hummer, according to the report.

The Pontiac was then pushed into Barrett's pickup.

The vehicles came to rest on the west side of the intersection. Riddick was not injured. Barrett was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital for a medical evaluation, according to the HP.

The juvenile was pronounced dead at the scene. The name of the deceased will be released tomorrow, following notification of next of kin, according to the HP.

The call came in to the Dickinson Police Department at 6:10 a.m. and police were still on-scene as of 8:30 a.m.
