BEMIDJI– A Bemidji man was seriously injured and taken to the Fargo Hospital after a crash on Lake Avenue just before midnight last night.
According to the state patrol, a Nissan 350Z was northbound on Lake Avenue when it lost control, crashing into trees on the left side of the road.
Twenty-year-old Rebekah Morrison of Ramsey was driving, and was treated for non-life threatening injuries at Sanford Bemidji.
Her passenger, 26-year-old Matthew Oustad of Bemidji, was extricated from the vehicle and airlifted to Fargo for treatment of his life threatening injuries. Morrison wasn’t believed to have been drinking.
Air bags did deploy and the roads were dry at the time. Both were wearing their seat belts, and the Bemidji Police Department assisted at the scene.
