St. Cloud woman dies after motorcycle-deer crash

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — Another fatal accident on Minnesota roads has raised the state's death toll to at least 15 since Friday.

A spokeswoman for St. Cloud Hospital says 44-year-old Mychelle Schmitt has died. Schmitt was riding on a motorcycle that collided with a deer Friday afternoon on a county road in Rockville.

Forty-nine-year-old Dale Schmitt, who was driving the motorcycle, is no longer listed as a patient at the hospital.

Among other crashes since Friday, three teenage girls were killed in a pickup rollover in southeastern Minnesota, six people including three teens were killed in an early Sunday head-on crash near Cambridge, and three people died Monday when a semi-truck collided with an SUV in Dakota County.
