CHATFIELD, Minn. - A teenage girl is dead following a crossover head-on collision in southeastern Minnesota Thursday night.
The State Patrol website says 16-year old Kaitlyn Hansen of Canton was killed when a pickup driven by a 55-year-old Illinois woman crossed the centerline of Highway 52 in Fillmore County and struck her car head-on.
Hansen was dead on the scene. The driver of the pickup wasn't wearing a seat belt and was ejected from her vehicle, but survived with non-life threatening injuries. She was taken to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment. Investigators say alcohol was detected in her system.
At this point it is unclear if the pickup driver will face criminal charges in Hansen's death.
