One killed, two hurt in head-on Otter Tail County crash

PARKERS PRAIRIE, Minn. — A Henning man was killed and two other people injured, one of them seriously, when two pickup trucks collided head-on on an icy Minnesota Highway 29 about 8 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Marissa Dawn Roden, 22, of Henning, was driving a 2014 Ford pickup southbound on Highway 29 about 5 miles north of Parkers Prairie, when she lost control on the icy road and drifted into the northbound lane, striking a northbound 2001 Ford pickup head on, the patrol said.

The driver of the 2001 Ford, a 71-year-old Henning man, died of his injuries, and his passenger, a 74-year-old Henning woman, was airlifted to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo with life-threatening injuries, the patrol said. Their identities were not released.

Roden, who was wearing a seat belt, was treated for minor injuries from the collision, the patrol said.

The patrol said the crash involved a person not using a seat belt, but did not say whether it was the driver or passenger in the 2001 Ford.
