Rep. Andrew Maragos of Minot injured in 2-car crash
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Highway Patrol says Minot Rep. Andrew Maragos and another man were injured in a two-vehicle crash near Larimore.
Troopers say Maragos’ car struck a vehicle driven by 33-year-old Travis Holt of Grand Forks late Tuesday afternoon on U.S. Highway 2.
The patrol says Holt’s vehicle crossed the highway attempting to enter a residential driveway when it was struck by Maragos’ car. Troopers say both vehicles then went into a ditch.
Both men were taken to a Grand Forks hospital. Troopers did not disclose the extent of their injuries.
Minot Rep. Roscoe Streyle says he got a text message from Maragos’ wife, Sherry, who said he “is OK and at home.”
Maragos is a 73-year-old Republican lawmaker who was first elected to the state House in 1993.
