Woman killed Saturday in Highway 2 crash is identified

The woman who died Saturday morning in a car crash at the junction of U.S. Highway 2 and state Highway 32 has been identified as 30-year-old Kelly Blomquist, 30, of Thief River Falls.

Blomquist died in a two-vehicle crash about 11 a.m. Saturday at the Marcoux Corner, the junction of highways 2 and 32, about 14 miles east of Crookston, according to the State Patrol.

Blomquist was a passenger in a vehicle driven by Cameron Chisholm, 31, of Thief River Falls, the State Patrol said. Following the crash, Chisholm was taken to Riverview Hospital in Crookston with non-life-threatening injuries.

Also injured was Wayne D. Bohn, 47, of Cass Lake, who was treated and released at First Care Hospital in Fosston, the State Patrol said.

Chisholm was driving a 1995 Oldsmobile 88 Royale south on Highway 32, stopped for a stop sign and proceeded south to cross over Highway 2, the State Patrol said. A 1993 Oldsmobile 98 Regency driven by Bohn was heading east. Chisholm's vehicle failed to yield to Bohn and the vehicles collided, the State Patrol said.

The point of impact was on the passenger side of Chisholm's vehicle, and Blomquist was proclaimed dead at the scene, the State Patrol said.

All three were wearing their seat belts, the State Patrol said.
