Train-car crash victim identified
A car-train collision near Perham killed a 67-year-old man at about 6 a.m. today, Friday, May 29.
Larry J. Brewer, of Perham, was identified later on Friday as the victim.
Wreckage from the pick-up truck box was scattered at the point of collision about two miles east of downtown Perham. The front-end and cab of the truck was pushed nearly three-quarters of a mile, before the westbound Burlington Northern-Santa Fe locomotive came to a stop.
