A Devils Lake, N.D., man was injured when he was rear-ended Thursday on U.S. Highway 2 near Devils Lake.

According to the North Dakota Highway Patrol:

Gary Johnson, 65, was heading east on Highway 2 when he slowed to make a left turn into a home.

At that time, Edward Woyen, 69, who was also eastbound in a 2000 Chevy pickup, pulled around a tractor trailer moving slower than other traffic. Woyen rear-ended Johnson, sending the Dodge into the median facing southwest.

Johnson was transported to Mercy Hospital in Devils Lake by Lake Region Ambulance, and was later flown to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks.

Johnson is in stable condition.

The accident is still under investigation.
