MANDAN, N.D. — A Bismarck man died this weekend after a three-vehicle crash that happened three weeks ago in Mandan.

Ronnie Kienzle, 71, died Sunday, March 27, at a hospital from his injuries caused by the March 10 crash at Twin City Drive and Main Street in Mandan, the North Dakota Highway Patrol said in a news release.

Tiffany Quast, 29, of Bismarck was driving a 2015 Ram 1500 around 3:40 p.m. March 10 east on Main Street East when Kienzle, who was westbound on Main, turned left at the Twin City intersection in his 1993 Ford F250, the news release said. The two vehicles collided and came to rest in the southeast corner of the intersection, the Highway Patrol said.

A 2019 Ram 1500, driven by James Teske, 76, of Mandan, rear-ended the Ford.

Quast and Teske, who were both wearing seatbelts, were not injured, but a 5-year-old in Quast’s vehicle who was wearing a seatbelt was treated for minor injuries. Kienzle and Teske did not have passengers in their vehicle.
