A 79-year-old Park Rapids man died from injuries he received in a two-vehicle traffic accident in Hubbard County Saturday.

Thomas Murphy Smith died after being airlifted to Innovis Hospital in Fargo, according to the Hubbard County Sheriff's Department.

Authorities said Smith was eastbound on County Road 15 about noon Saturday when he went through a stop sign and collided with a van that was on County Road 6.

The van's driver, 40-year-old Angela Kay Brumbaugh, of rural Menahga, was taken by her husband to St. Joseph's Area Health Services in Park Rapids, where she was treated and released Saturday.

Emergency responders extricated Smith from his Dodge Dakota pickup.
