Authorities on Thursday identified the teenager who died in a collision at an intersection involving a car and a semitrailer truck hauling cattle.
Dylan A. Delaney, 17, was a passenger in a car that was struck late Wednesday morning in the Fillmore County community of Mabel, according to the State Patrol.
The car’s driver, Lauren E. Bedard, 19, of Houston, Minn., was critically injured and taken to a hospital from the scene, the patrol said. Another passenger, Spencer Douglas, 15, of Mabel, also suffered life-threatening injuries.
The truck driver, Perry L. Omodt, 50, of Rushford, Minn., was not hurt. About a half dozen among more than 30 cattle in Omodt’s truck died in the collision, said Patrol Sgt. Troy Christianson.
The patrol said that Bedard, who was traveling north on Lyndale Street, turned left onto Hwy. 44 about 10:20 a.m., when the truck, heading west on the highway, hit the car.
Delaney grew up in Mabel and attended class in the Mabel-Canton School District.
