PARK RAPIDS, Minn. – A Park Rapids woman was seriously injured and four others were hurt in a head-on crash near here Sunday morning. Minnesota State Patrol officials said a Chevy Silverado driven by Ryan Halloran, 31, of Belle Plain, Minn., was headed south on Highway 71 at 11:56 a.m. and turned left onto 230th Street in front of another truck, a Ford pickup, headed northbound. The two trucks collided head-on, officials said. A passenger in the Ford, Marla Pelawa, 59, Park Rapids, suffered serious injury.
Paul Scholl, 50, was shot about 5:30 p.m. as he was leaving the area where he was hunting, about 16 miles southeast of Mahnomen, the Sheriff’s Office reported. Scholl’s two brothers in-law picked him up and then met with ambulances from Mahnomen and Naytahwaush, the report said. Scholl was taken to the Mahnomen Health Center where he was pronounced dead.
