Two people from Moorhead were killed in a crash Friday morning that involved a pickup truck running a stop sign. 

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a Ford F-250 was eastbound on County Road 30 in Wilkin County around 11 a.m. when it failed to stop at a stop sign and collided with a 2011 Subaru Forester that was southbound on Hwy. 9. 

The driver of the Subaru, 62-year-old Margaret Mary Oneill, and the passenger, 62-year-old Thomas Andrew Burton, both of Moorhead, were pronounced dead at the scene. 

The man driving the 2018 Ford F-250 was a 26-year-old from Coon Valley, Wisconsin. He suffered non-life-threatening injuries and did  not require treatment at a hospital. 

Alcohol did not factor in the crash and all vehicle occupants involved were wearing seat belts.  

Highway 9 and County Road 30 intersect on the south side of Atherton Township, which is about 20 miles southeast of Fargo. 

Fatal crash east of Rochester

A separate fatal crash Friday happened just before 5 p.m. on Hwy. 14 near Chester Road in Marion Township, Olmsted County. 

The State Patrol says a 2005 Chevy Tahoe was going east on Hwy. 14 when it slammed into a 2016 Honda Pilot that had slowed ahead to make a left turn. The contact forced the Honda into oncoming traffic and it was struck head-on by a 2018 Chevy Silverado. 

The driver of the Honda, identified as 40-year-old Robyn Lynne Barclay, of St. Charles, Minnesota, was transported to Mayo Clinic Hospital, St. Marys Campus but did not survive her injuries. 

A 28-year-old Kasson woman driving the Tahoe was not injured, and the 23-year-old Rochester man driving the Silverado suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to St. Marys Campus for treatment.
