A Longville woman was killed and two more were injured, one seriously, after a crash on Highway 200 Monday afternoon.

The Minnesota State Patrol says 53-year-old Virginia Stewart was heading west on Highway 200 when a Chevy Silverado struck her Hyundai Tucson head on, while the driver was passing another vehicle at a high rate of speed.

Stewart was killed at the scene of the crash around 1:50 p.m., in Turtle Lake Township at the intersection of 44th Ave. NW.

A passenger in the Chevy, 39-year-old LaVae Oothoudt of Sauk Rapids, was ejected from the vehicle and was transported to Sanford Bemidji for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

The Chevy driver, 39-year-old Corey Wuori of Walker, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at Sanford Bemidji.

Wuori, according to the state patrol, was under the influence of alcohol and neither Chevy occupant was wearing a seat belt.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office, Leech Lake Tribal Police Department and North Ambulance assisted at the scene.
