A 32-year-old man from Grand Forks, N.D., died Wednesday in a crash in Becker County, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.
Timothy Alan Lee was driving a 2001 Hyundai Elantra west on Hwy. 34 near County Road 29 in Erie Township when his car crossed the centerline just before 3 p.m. and sideswiped an eastbound 2016 Chevy Silverado. The Hyundai then hit a 2016 Volvo XC90 head-on.
Lee was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol said.
The Volvo driver, Kathryn M. Mulcahy, 32, of St. Louis Park, suffered noncritical injuries. The Silverado driver, Arlene Warling, 68, of Lake Park, was not injured. Mulcahy and Warling both were wearing seatbelts. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, the patrol said.
Also Wednesday, a 28-year-old man from Amery, Wis., died of injuries he suffered Saturday in a two-vehicle crash in St. Croix County. Nicholas J. Fellman died at Regions Hospital in St. Paul.
Fellman was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the St. Croix County Sheriff’s Office. The crash was the county’s fourth fatality for 2017.
