Fatal ambulance crash near Grand Rapids under investigation

GRAND RAPIDS, MN -- At least one person is dead and several others seriously injured, after a dump truck collided with an ambulance Tuesday north of Grand Rapids.

According to the State Patrol, it happened just before 10:30 a.m. at the intersection of County Road 336 and County Road 57 in Lawrence Township.

Officials say a Meds-1 Ambulance was southbound on County Road 336 when it was t-boned by an eastbound dump truck.

According to the State Patrol, there were three people in the ambulance.

At least one of the two passengers was killed.

The State Patrol has not released the identities of the two passengers.

The driver, a 28-year-old Cohasset woman, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the dump truck, a 67-year-old Nashwauk man, was also taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

He was the only person in the truck.

While it is unclear what led to the crash, officials say alcohol was not a factor.

This crash happened at the same intersection where a crash took the life of DNR officer Sarah Grell in late May.
