The crash happened at the intersection of Minnesota Highway 18 and Minnesota Highway 65 at about 7:51 p.m. The intersection is in Williams Township in southeastern Aitkin County.

The Patrol says a SUV that was northbound on Highway 65 collided with a semi-truck that was eastbound on Highway 18. The Patrol's news release did not specify whether either vehicle failed to yield, and a spokesperson said they would not be providing any additional information because it is an open investigation.

The crash killed 40-year-old Kerry Lea Heiniemi of Goodland, Minn. The driver of the semi-truck, a 33-year-old man from St. Louis, Missouri, received injuries that are not life-threatening.
