MINOT, N.D. (KMOT) - The city of Minot has set up a makeshift stoplight on the city’s busiest intersection.

The light on the north end of the intersection that faces northbound traffic was knocked over in a crash Thursday.

The intersection was treated as an all-way stop for some time, until the city was able to put up a temporary light.

In a post on Facebook, the city said they are working on a better substitute until they can get a new light installed.

Drivers are urged to use caution when passing through.

In a social media post, Minot Police said the driver of the car, a man in his 30s, suffered a medical emergency and was taken to Trinity Hospital, but later was conscious and alert. The man’s status as of Friday is unclear.

No citations were issued.
