Driver killed after other motorist crosses into opposite lane, causing head-on crash
A Finlayson woman was killed when a pickup driver drifted over the center line and crashed into her vehicle head-on.
Mia L. Besemann, 58, was traveling southbound on Highway 65, around 6:30 a.m. Thursday in a Buick sedan, according to the State Patrol.
Around mile marker 73, near Captain Dan's Crows Nest Resort and Northwoods Steakhouse in Mora, the driver of a Dodge pickup heading northbound crossed into the southbound lane, the State Patrol said.
The pickup crashed into the sedan head-on.
Besemann, who was wearing a seat belt, died at the scene of the wreck.
The pickup truck's driver, a 46-year-old man from Braham, was uninjured. One of his passengers, a 30-year-old man from Brook Park, suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a Mora hospital. A second passenger, a 31-year-old also from Brook Park, was uninjured. None of the three were wearing seat belts.
The State Patrol says alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
