Fatal crash near Grand Rapids

One person was killed when he was struck by a car on Hwy. 200 in Jacobson Township, about 25 miles southeast of Grand Rapids. 

The crash happened around 7:45 p.m. Sunday when two men in a 2016 Chevy Cruze hit an animal. They stopped on the side of eastbound Hwy. 200 and got out to inspect damage to their vehicle when a 55-year-old woman from Hibbing driving a 2016 Chrysler 200 hit the passenger on the side of the road, killing him. 

The victim has only been identified as a 61-year-old man from Floodwood, Minnesota.
