One dead in alcohol-related motorcycle versus car crash

PARK RAPIDS -- A Bemidji woman faces a charge of criminal vehicular homicide following her involvement in a Sunday morning crash that killed the passenger of a motorcycle.

Victoria Whitefeather was travelling south on County Road 36 when she crossed the center line and struck a motorcycle driven by Robert Childs, of Proctor, according to a press release from the Hubbard County Sheriff's Office. Childs' passenger, 51-year-old Tracy Childs, was airlifted to North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale where she was pronounced dead as a result of injuries from the collision.
