WATFORD CITY, N.D. -- One person is dead following a two-vehicle crash that sent a semi-truck barreling into a school Monday afternoon.
After colliding with a car at the intersection of Highways 23 and 73 in McKenzie County, the truck slammed into an area of classrooms at Johnson Corners Christian Academy, sending students and teachers scurrying for safety.
"We had no idea what hit us," said Janice Sanford, a teacher at the school. "We thought it was a bomb."
