GRANITE FALLS, Minn. – Icy roads may be to blame for a two-vehicle head-on crash Monday morning south of Granite Falls that killed one individual and injured another.

The State Patrol said Terrie McCoss, 35, of Marshall died in the head-on crash on state Highway 23 south of Yellow Medicine County Road 17.

Roads were in icy condition at the time of the accident, which was reported around 7:30 a.m.

According to the State Patrol, McCoss was driving a 2003 Honda Civic north on Highway 23 when her vehicle was struck by a 2007 GMC Sierra pickup that was being driven by Jennifer Henslin, 50, of Granite Falls.

The report indicates Henslin was going south on Highway 23 when she lost control of the pickup, which slid sideways and crossed the center line and collided head-on with the Honda.

Henslin was taken to the Granite Falls hospital.

There were no passengers in the vehicles.
