Geary described the couple as a husband and wife in their 60s. Neither suffered serious injuries after both of the Volvo’s airbags went off. The couple was later taken away by an ambulance.

The driver of the red Ford, a man who appeared to be in his mid-30s, was unhurt, Geary said.

Grand Forks RCMP said they were continuing their investigation at around 5:45 p.m. Police do not suspect alcohol or drugs were involved in the collision.
