Birth: Oct. 5, 1950

Death: Jun. 12, 1976

The Isanti County Sheriff's office reported the deaths of two rural Isanti residents over the weekend.

Dallas Blomquist Jr., 25, of Route 3, Isanti, was killed when struck by a Burlington Northern northbound train about 4:30 a.m. Saturday morning.

The accident occurred at the Isanti township crossing, 1 1/2 miles north of Isanti.

Engineer Vern Charbonnar reported that his train was traveling at about 40 miles per hour when the crew spotted a man lying on the tracks. He said it was too late to stop.

Charbonnar indicated that it was still dark at the time and the crew first thought what they saw were metal containers for tie spikes that area youngsters have been placing on the tracks.
