An International Falls man was killed in a rollover in Kabetogama Township on Wednesday.

The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office responded to the one-vehicle crash at about 8 p.m. Deputies said a passenger was trapped in the car and the driver was deceased.

According to the Sheriff's Office, it appeared the car was headed southeast on Gamma Road when the driver lost control coming out of a curve. The driver overcorrected, rolling the car and then striking a tree, according to deputies.

The driver was identified Thursday as 43-year-old Jonathon Earl Stevenson of International Falls, Minn. The passenger, 38-year-old Tara Dawn Reller, also of International Falls, was brought to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash is under investigation, but deputies said excessive speed and alcohol appear to be factors.
