MANVEL, N.D. (AP) - A Grand Forks woman involved in a head-on collision on Interstate 29 in northeastern North Dakota over the weekend has died of her injuries.

The Highway Patrol says 26-year-old Rebecca Wright was driving a Jeep north in the southbound lanes of the interstate and collided head-on with a semitrailer. The semi then crossed into the northbound lanes and struck another semitrailer.

The Jeep caught fire after the crash that happened shortly before 12:30 a.m. Saturday north of Manvel. Wright was taken to a hospital in Grand Forks. The patrol on Wednesday said she had died.

No one in the semis was hurt. The interstate was closed for several hours while the roadway was cleared.
