A motorist was killed Friday night in Mahnomen County after a head-on collision on Minnesota's Highway 59.

The accident happened at 7:28 p.m. Friday near milemarker 291 on Highway 59, when a vehicle in the southbound lane of the undivided highway crossed over the median line and hit a vehicle traveling in the northbound lane.

An incident report from the Minnesota State Patrol said the driver of the northbound vehicle had no apparent injuries. There were no details about the driver in the southbound vehicle, other than one person in that car died as a result of the accident.
