According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a Toyota Yaris driven by Alexis Haylee Covey, 60, of Forest Lake, sideswiped an Acura TSX sedan as both were traveling south near U.S. Highway 8 around 4:20 p.m. Sunday.
Covey was airlifted to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, where she later died. According to the accident report, she was not wearing a seatbelt.
The driver of the Acura TSX, Gina Olson, 45, of Hugo, was not hurt; she was wearing a seatbelt, according to the report.
