A 74-year-old Bemidji man died Saturday of injuries he suffered in a two-vehicle crash.

Torrance D. Lillevold died at Sanford Bemidji Medical Center, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Lillevold was driving a 2002 Jeep Cherokee south on Vagabond Loop in Farden Township when he crossed the westbound lanes of Hwy. 2 in front of a 2008 Jeep Liberty driven by Nicole Sovde, 40, of Bemidji, according to the patrol. Sovde swerved to avoid the Cherokee, but the two vehicles collided. Lillevold's vehicle spun and rolled into a ditch.

The crash happened at 9:23 p.m. Tuesday on dry roads, the patrol said.

Sovde and her passenger, 14-year-old Shelby Sovde, suffered noncritical injuries and were also taken to Sanford.

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