NEAR TOLNA, ND (WDAZ-TV) - An 86-year-old woman is dead and another injured after a two-vehicle crash just south of Tolna.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol has not yet identified the woman killed.

She was driving a 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis south on Nelson County Road 32 at 1:37 p.m. on Thursday when the patrol says she failed to yield at the intersection with ND Highway 15.

23-year-old Emily Danduran, of Grand Forks, was driving with a 2-year-old passenger in a Chevy Malibu on Highway 15 when she collided with the Mercury.

Danduran's vehicle rotated 180 degrees and came to rest in the east lane of Highway 15. The Mercury was hit in the driver's side door and came to rest south of Highway 15 on Nelson County Road 32.

The patrol says the 2-year-old passenger in Danduran's vehicle was uninjured. Danduran was taken to the McVille hospital for injuries. The driver of the Mercury was taken to the hospital as well, where she was pronounced dead.

Danduran and her passenger were both wearing safety restraints. The driver of the Mercury was not, according to the patrol.

The crash remains under investigation.
