One killed, another seriously injured in Marshall County crash

A man is dead and a woman is seriously injured after a crash in Marshall County yesterday afternoon.

According to the state patrol, a Nissan Frontier, driven by 58-year-old Kevin McCormick of Alexandria, was southbound on Highway 219 when he crossed over the centerline on a curve and collided with a northbound Jeep Cherokee.

The Jeep was driven by 43-year-old Samantha Lunsetter of Gatzke.

Both were airlifted from the scene, but McCormick was pronounced dead at the Altru Hospital in Grand Forks. Lunsetter is being treated for her life-threatening injuries at the Sanford Hospital in Fargo.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash, and air bags deployed in both vehicles.
