Marlin Miller, 50, of Ponsford, Minnesota, was in his vehicle outside his workplace in Frazee when a car crashed into him head-on, according to KFGO. He was taken to a hospital but did not survive his injuries. 

The report says a 39-year-old Perham man was arrested and charges are expected. 

Anderson Bus and Coach, Miller's employer, posted to Facebook saying he was "killed in front of our garage" while listening to the radio at 5:45 a.m.
