AITKIN - One person was killed in a two-vehicle crash reported at 11:21 a.m. Thursday on Highway 169 in Aitkin, the Minnesota State Patrol reported.

The crash involved a Chevrolet Tahoe, which was southbound on Highway 169, and a Chevrolet Silverado, which was westbound on Lone Oak Road in Aitkin. The Silverado pulled out from a stop sign and struck the Tahoe broadside, causing that vehicle to roll and land on its roof.

Vernon R. Thorsten, 88, Aitkin, a passenger in the Chevrolet Silverado, and Cynthia Considine, 55, Crosby, were both taken to Riverwood Health System in Aitkin for non-life threatening injuries.

According to the state patrol it was not clear which vehicle Considine was in prior to the collision. The state patrol also did not indicate in which vehicle the victim was riding. The name of the victim was expected to be released Friday, pending notification of family members.

The Aitkin Police Department assisted the state patrol on scene.
