THOMPSON, N.D. (AP) — Two women including a 97-year-old are dead after a head-on collision on a highway in northeastern North Dakota.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says the women were passengers in a sport utility vehicle that collided with a Nissan Altima on Highway 15 near Thompson on Thursday morning.

Authorities say the westbound Nissan was negotiating a curve in the frost-covered road when it crossed the center line and collided with the eastbound SUV.

The patrol says the 97-year-old woman died at the scene. A 59-year-old woman was pronounced dead at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks. Their names were not immediately released.

The drivers were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
