Four injured in rear-end accidents Tuesday

Both drivers were injured in a Tuesday evening crash where one rear-ended the other, who had slowed for a construction zone about a mile south of Alexander.

Steven Crashley and Lindsey Lehman were both traveling south on Highway 85 when Crashley stopped for a flagman. Lehman then struck him from behind, causing Crashley's 1994 Chevy Cavalier to spin.

They were taken to Mercy Hospital in Williston.

In another crash, one driver rear-ended another on Highway 1804 about 8 miles west of Trenton at about 1:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Danny Poindexter was traveling westbound in his 2005 Peterbilt semi truck when he slowed for construction zone traffic in front of him.

Paul Romo then rear-ended Poindexter's trailer, totaling his 1994 Ford F350 pickup and injuring himself. He wasn't wearing a seat belt.

Tuesday evening at about 6:30, a driver rear-ended another that slowed suddenly to turn off Highway 23 about 3 miles east of Watford City.

Gary Clark, in the 2010 Ford F-350, wound up in a ditch. Mary Hammack, in front in a 2001 Nissan Xterra, spun and wound up in the other lane. She was transported to the McKenzie County Hospital with injuries.
