UPDATE: 1 Killed, 1 Hurt in Coon Rapids Car Crash
COON RAPIDS (AP) - Authorities say an 84-year-old Anoka woman was killed and another driver was injured after a three-vehicle crash in Coon Rapids.
The Anoka County Sheriff's Office says the crash happened Thursday afternoon on Coon Rapids Boulevard. Authorities say the driver of a Jeep Grand Cherokee made a left turn onto Coon Rapids Boulevard and immediately merged into the right lane, clipping a Mercury Cougar that was driven by 84-year-old Donna Mae Youso.
The impact sent Youso's car over the center median and into oncoming traffic, where it crashed into a minivan.
Youso was killed in the crash.
The minivan's driver suffered serious injuries that aren't considered life-threatening. The driver of the Jeep wasn't injured.
An investigation into the crash is ongoing.
