The crash happened around 8:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Two people were killed and one person was injured when an SUV and a pickup collided in northwest Minnesota around 8:15 p.m. Wednesday. 

The State Patrol says the collision happened about 10 miles north of Fargo in Georgetown Township. A Ford Expedition was northbound on Highway 75 near 200th Avenue NW and was struck by a southbound Ford F-150 when the driver crossed into the northbound lane. 

The driver of the Expedition, identified as 49-year-old Tamara K. Green, of Halstad, Minnesota, was pronounced dead at the scene. A 74-year-old woman was a passenger in the SUV and suffered non-critical injuries. She was taken to a Fargo hospital for treatment. 

Also pronounced dead at the scene was the driver of the Ford pickup. He has been identified as Nathan L. Thompson, 45, of Ada, Minnesota. He was not wearing a seatbelt, the State Patrol said. 

The state's traffic safety department has reported 343 deaths on Minnesota roads so far in 2020. That's up from 312 at the same point in 2019, when Minnesota finished with 364 traffic deaths.
