Missouri teen dies in Minnesota traffic collision

LINDEN GROVE, Minn. — The Minnesota State Patrol says a car collided with a semi-trailer, killing a Missouri teen and leaving two others with serious injuries.

A Hibbing Daily Tribune report says the collision happened in Linden Grove on Tuesday evening.

A preliminary investigation says the car driver ran a stop sign and collided with the trailer.

The driver was 21-year-old Whitney R. Cragun, 21, of Ironton, Minn. She suffered serious injuries, as did 22-year-old Jonathon A. Vickers.

Nineteen-year-old Elizabeth C. Hill of Liberty, Mo., died.

The truck driver wasn't hurt.

Authorities say alcohol was not a factor.
