ND soldier directing traffic injured in crash

BISMARCK (AP) -- A Bismarck man is accused of causing a wreck that injured a North Dakota National Guard soldier who had been directing traffic for flood relief.

Jonathan Christopher Frye, 23, was charged Friday with leaving the scene of an accident, driving under the influence and driving without liability insurance.

Authorities say a 24-year-old Guard soldier from Fargo was directing traffic related to flood preparations in south Bismarck. Frye is accused of hitting a vehicle, which hit the soldier, then driving off.

The military says the Fargo soldier needed stitches and had a bruised shoulder.

Authorities found Frye at a home and arrested him.
