LITCHFIELD - Tragedy struck in Litchfield Sunday, as a 16-year-old was killed in a single-car accident.

Marcus Huhn, a junior member of the Dragons basketball and baseball teams, died when his 2001 Ford Focus drifted into a ditch off Meeker County Road 9 at around 9:30 a.m.

According to the Meeker County Sheriff’s Office, Huhn was not wearing a seatbelt, which resulted in him being ejected from the automobile.

John Carlson, Litchfield’s varsity basketball coach, met with players afterwards, calling the proceedings “very difficult.”

“Obviously it’s a real shock to our community,” an audibly shaken Carlson said.

“When you see a kid grow up like that, you expect you’ll get to see that growth continue. It’s just a real shame.”

Huhn, a reserve guard for the Dragons in 2015-16, was known for his work ethic, with Carlson referring to him as “one of the hardest working kids in our program.”
