A 26-year-old Oakdale man was killed in a crash in Hubbard County Wednesday morning.

The State Patrol identified the man as Eric Follensbee.


Two other people - 23-year-old Michelle Farlee of Park Rapids and 67-year-old Roger Proulx - were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

According to the State Patrol, Farlee was driving a Subaru northbound on Highway 71 in Guthrie Township, about 14 miles south of Bemidji, when she lost control and crossed the center line.

Farlee's vehicle collided with Proulx's, which was going southbound on 71. The Follensbee was Farlee's passenger.

All three people involved were wearing their seat belts.

The roads were wet, according to State Patrol, and alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
