A woman was fatally injured Friday morning in a car crash West of Proctor. First responders and law enforcement responded to a report of a two-vehicle accident at 8:50 a.m. It was near the intersection of South Ugstad Road and Ugstad Junction in Midway Township.

According to the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office, an initial investigation leads authorities to believe the woman was traveling east with an 11-year-old passenger. She attempted to turn north onto Ugstad Road when she was struck by a southbound vehicle. That car was driven by a young man, also of Midway Township.

The collision was characterized as a T-bone incident. Unfortunately, the woman died as a result. Further, her 11-year-old passenger was transported by ambulance to Essentia Health Duluth. The boy is currently listed in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries. The other driver was transported by ambulance to St. Luke’s. He is also listed in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries. The identity of the boy has not been released.

The accident report said heavy fog and speed appear to have been contributing factors. However, the collision remains under investigation by the St. Louis County Sheriff’s Office and the Minnesota State Patrol. Obviously, no one should be speeding in heavy fog.
