Dalton teen killed in accidentPublished 10:59am Monday, October 10, 2011
A 15-year-old Dalton girl died early Sunday morning in a two-car crash that injured seven other people, three critically.
Skylah Oksness died in the broadside collision, which occurred around 2:30 a.m. on State Highway 210, just west of Wall Lake.
The state patrol reported that Sasha Parker, 24, of Battle Lake was driving a 1992 Chevrolet Caprice east on 210. However, as Parker approached the intersection with County Highway 33, a northbound 1999 Buick Regal driven by Aimee Magnusson, 18, of Fergus Falls, also drove into the intersection, and the vehicles collided.
Each vehicle had three passengers in it; all of them were injured. Parker was treated for her injuries and released, but Magnusson was listed as in critical condition. Also critically injured were Kaylee Holte, 18, of Fergus Falls (a passenger in Magnusson’s vehicle) and Heath Parker, 31, of Battle Lake (a passenger in Parker’s vehicle). Oksness was in Magnusson’s car.
Casey Love, 27, and Jessie Scheuble, 26, both of Battle Lake, were also in Parker’s car. Both received non-life threatening injuries. So did a 14-year-old girl in Magnusson’s car.
