Victims of seven-car St. Cloud crash identified

ST. CLOUD, Minn. – Victims of a seven-car accident near St. Cloud have been indentified.

The Minnesota State Patrol said 78-year-old Thomas Williams of Sandwich, Ill., and 46-year-old Sophie Mitzel, also of Illinois, died Sunday night when their Chrysler minivan rolled off the interstate and on top of another vehicle. Mitzel is originally from Wahpeton, N.D.

Two others involved in the five-vehicle crash were critically injured. The State Patrol said five others suffered minor injuries, including a 30-year-old Bismarck man. The driver of a semi wasn’t hurt.

The State Patrol said traffic had slowed on the interstate because of a car fire and the semi was going too fast.
