Carlton County said it was a Proctor woman who died in an ATV crash on July 4th. The sheriff's office said Tricia Jean Lanthier, 47, died at the hospital after the crash.


Emergency crews responded to the intersection of County Road 139 and County Road 6 in Barnum Township, around 11:40am.

Authorities said she had been riding in a group of ATVs, which created a large amount of dust. That limited visibility, and Lanthier reportedly did not see the approaching intersection.

The sheriff's office said when she tried to stop, she lost control and the ATV rolled on top of her. She had been wearing a helmet.
