A pickup crossed into oncoming traffic, killing the motorist heading the other way near Granite Falls.


A pickup truck crossed into the opposite lane on an icy western Minnesota highway Monday morning, colliding with a car and killing the motorist heading the other way, authorities said.

The crash occurred about 7:30 a.m. on Hwy. 23 just south of Granite Falls and killed a 35-year-old woman from Marshall, Minn., according to the State Patrol. The woman’s identity has yet to be released.

Jennifer A. Henslin, 50, of Granite Falls, was heading south on Hwy. 23, south of County Rd. 17, when her pickup slid sideways and collided with a car in the northbound lane, the patrol said. Henslin was slightly hurt.

There is no evidence that alcohol use played a role in the crash.
