A 75-year-old man from Park Rapids, Minn., was killed Thursday in a two-car crash on icy Hwy. 71 in north-central Minnesota’s Hubbard County.

Dale Alfred Maves was driving a 1999 Volkswagen Beetle north on Hwy. 71 south of County Road 44, in Guthrie Township, when it was hit by a southbound Subaru Legacy that had lost control on the slippery road, according to the State Patrol. The crash happened at 9:48 a.m.

Maves was alone in the Volkswagen, the patrol said.

The Subaru driver, Elise N. Sikes, 18, of Hudson, Wis., and her passengers, Marta A. Christensen, 18, of Hudson, and Saketh Rajendran, 19, of Brooklyn Park, all suffered noncritical injuries.

All four people involved in the crash were wearing seat belts and alcohol was not a factor, the patrol said.
