Fargo man injured in car-combine crash

ENDERLIN, N.D.-- A Fargo man was seriously injured after crashing his SUV into a combine in southeast North Dakota Saturday night, Oct. 21.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol reports 27-year-old Matthew Johnson was eastbound on Highway 46, about four miles west of Enderlin, N.D., when he approached a John Deere 8820 Combine from the rear. The combine, driven by a 15-year-old from Milnor, N.D., slowed and moved right to allow Johnson’s Land Rover to pass, but the front right of the Land Rover struck the left rear of the combine, according to the Highway Patrol.

The combine entered the south ditch. The SUV entered north ditched and rolled.

The crash occurred at about 7:26 p.m. Saturday.

The teenage male driving the combine was not injured, troopers said. Johnson was transported to a Fargo hospital by ambulance with serious injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
