Authorities reported two people killed Tuesday, Oct. 26, when their vehicle crossed the centerline, crashing head-on with a semi, in Leaf River Township near Wadena MN.

Upon arrival of emergency personnel, Minnesota State Patrol advised that a 2006 Cadillac STS was traveling north when the vehicle veered across the centerline and struck a southbound 2017 Peterbilt semi. The driver and the passenger were dead at the scene, according to the Minnesota State Patrol incident report. The driver of the semi was taken to Tri-County Health Care in Wadena with non-life threatening injuries.

The state patrol reports that one person in the car was wearing their seatbelt. It unknown whether the other person in the car or the truck driver were wearing theirs. Fire personnel were on scene for several hours to assist law enforcement with the crash and clean-up of debris, according to the Wadena Fire Department.
