The driver of the Chevrolet approached the Toyota from behind and failed to correct, with the Chevy then striking the boat and Toyota from behind. The Toyota lost control and entered the median of 94 and overturned. The Chevy then lost control and entered the north ditch and traveled through a fence. The Toyota came to rest in the median on its wheels. The Chevrolet came to rest in a bean field north of 94.

The driver towing the boat, a 71-year-old man from Wisconsin, suffered minor injuries. The other driver, a 38-year-old man from Underwood, was unharmed.

The crash remains under investigation by the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
