Bemidji man injured in Marshall County crash

Two were injured in a Marshall County crash Monday afternoon.

The state patrol says the Chevy Colorado, driven by 53-year-old Ken Johnston of Bemidji, was southbound on Highway 59.

A Chevy Traverse, driven by 18-year-old Katelyn Longerbone of Newfolden, was westbound on County Road 28.

The two vehicles collided.

Road conditions were dry and alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.

Both were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Sanford-Thief River Falls.

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, Newfolden Fire, and Tri-County EMS assisted at the scene.
