Crash Causes Damage to Downtown Dairy Queen.
On Saturday, March 13, 2021, at approximately 8:20 am, officers were dispatched to the intersection of 8 Street and Main Avenue for a report of a two-vehicle crash with unknown injuries. Upon arrival, officers noted that one vehicle had struck the exterior of Dairy Queen. Both drivers were evaluated on scene by ambulance personnel; however, no one required transport to the hospital.
The investigation determined the victim's vehicle was stationary on Main Avenue at 8 Street facing westbound. The suspect vehicle was reported to be traveling eastbound on Main Avenue when it crossed the center lanes at 8 Street and struck the victim vehicle's passenger side. The suspect vehicle then continued eastbound and came to a rest against the Dairy Queen building.
Statements on scene lead to the belief the eastbound driver possibly fell asleep while operating their vehicle. The driver, Brandon Wanner, age 20, of Fargo, ND, was cited for Careless Driving. Both vehicles required tow trucks to be removed from the scene. The damage to the Dairy Queen forced them to close for the day. No injuries were reported.
