Parkers Prairie woman dies from crash injuries

PARKERS PRAIRIE, Minn. – A 77-year-old Parkers Prairie woman died after a head-on crash just south of Parkers Prairie on Wednesday morning.

The Minnesota State Patrol on Wednesday initially described Lucille Vogt’s injuries as non-life-threatening, but a news release updated at 8:25 a.m. Thursday lists her as deceased.

Vogt was taken to Douglas County Hospital in Alexandria after the crash, which occurred about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The patrol said 18-year-old Kayla Carry of Browerville was driving a 1998 Cavalier south on Highway 29 when she crossed the centerline and collided with a 2003 Ford Taurus driven by Vogt.

The Life Link III air ambulance was called to the scene and transported Carry. Her condition at St. Cloud Hospital was listed as critical in the updated State Patrol accident report.

Firefighters had to extricate the victims.

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts, according to the State Patrol.
