Crash with alleged drunk driver claims Longville woman

A Longville woman died and two other motorists were injured in a head-on crash involving an alleged drunk driver Monday, Feb. 1, in Turtle Lake Township in Cass County.

The Minnesota State Patrol reported Virginia Marie Stewart, 53, was traveling westbound on Highway 200 in her 2020 Hyundai Tucson at 1:51 p.m. Monday, when an eastbound 2003 Chevrolet Silverado driven by 39-year-old Corey Allen Wuori of Walker struck Stewart head on while passing another vehicle at a high rate of speed.

Stewart died as a result of injuries suffered in the crash. Wuori suffered non-life-threatening injuries, while his passenger, 39-year-old Lavae Maria Oothoudt of Sauk Rapids, was ejected from the truck and suffered life-threatening injuries. Both were transported to Sanford Bemidji Medical Center.

Neither Wuori nor Oothoudt were wearing seat belts and alcohol is considered to be a factor, the state patrol reported. Stewart was wearing a seat belt.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office, Walker Fire Department, Leech Lake Tribal Police and North Memorial Health Ambulance assisted at the scene.
