The crash occurred at the intersection of North Plantagenet Road Southwest and Monroe Avenue Southwest in Bemidji, according to a release from the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office. The dispatch office was notified of the crash at 6 p.m.

A car driven by Patty Beighley, 54, of Bemidji was traveling east on Plantagenet Road when she was hit by a car driven by Cassidy Sharpnack, 20, of Hines, Minn., who was traveling north on Monroe Avenue and failed to stop at the intersection, the sheriff’s office said.
