Killed was Cindy Lou Christiansen, 55, from Otsego, the Sheriff’s Office said, adding that she was wearing a seat belt.
The SUV’s driver, Becky Allard, 38, of Otsego, and a 3-year-old riding with her were not injured, the Sheriff’s Office added.
The car was heading west on Hwy. 37 “when it spun out of control on the snow-covered road” and collided with the SUV, the Sheriff’s Office said.
