Angler struck, killed alongside west-central Minnesota lake

MORRIS, Minn. – A 32-year-old Morris man died after he was struck by a vehicle while fishing along the shore of Long Lake early Wednesday night, May 15, authorities said.

The Stevens County Sheriff’s Department said Nicholas Hervin died from injuries he suffered when the vehicle struck him in an embankment, a release said.

Joshua Dewald, 40, of Brooten was eastbound when his vehicle veered into the opposite lane and hit a parked pickup truck on the side of Stevens County Road 10, a release said. The collision caused Dewald's vehicle to go sideways down the embankment and strike Hervin.

Both men were transported Stevens Community Medical Center.

Long Lake is about 10 miles east of Morris.
