Fatal Accident Near Thief River Falls-Personal Injury Lawyer


Minnesota Personal Injury Attorney post:

A woman from Gatzke, Minnesota, was seriously injured and an Alexandria man died following a two vehicle collision on Highway 219 near Thief River Falls Wednesday afternoon, November 6, 2019. 

The State Patrol says just before 4:30 pm a Nissan Frontier was southbound on MNTH 219 and a Jeep Grand Cherokee was northbound on MNTH 219. The Frontier entered a curve in the roadway and crossed over the center line colliding with the Jeep Cherokee. The driver of the Frontier, 58 year-old Kevin McCormick, of Alexandria, Minnesota, and the driver of the Jeep, 43 year-old Samantha Lunsetter, were airlifted from the scene with life-threatening injuries.  McCormick died at Altru Hospital in Grand Forks.  Lunsetter, the driver of the Jeep, was airlifted to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo with life-threatening injuries.

This is a horrible and tragic car accident.
