The Minnesota State Patrol says a car collided with a semi-trailer, killing a Liberty teen and leaving two others with serious injuries. Elizabeth C. Hill was one of five occupants in a vehicle that collided with a tractor trailer carrying spring wheat around 6:35 p.m. Tuesday.
A Hibbing Daily Tribune report says the collision happened in Linden Grove Tuesday evening. A preliminary investigation says the car driver ran a stop sign and collided with the trailer. The driver was 21-year-old Whitney R. Cragun, 21, of Ironton, Minn. She suffered serious injuries, as did 22-year-old Jonathon A. Vickers. The truck driver wasn't hurt. Authorities say alcohol was not a factor.
