WALKER — A 36-year-old Walker man died as the result of a head-on crash Monday morning, June 29.

The Minnesota State Patrol received the report of the crash 7:39 a.m. in Lakeport Township in Hubbard County, just west of the Hubbard-Cass county line. David Sidney Weimer died as the result of injuries suffered when the 2005 Hyundai Elantra he drove was struck head-on by a GMC Yukon, driven by Ryan Henry Schlichting, 19, of Dilworth.

The road was dry at the time of the crash, according to the state patrol, and both drivers wore seat belts. Schlichtling suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to Essentia Health-Fargo for treatment.
