BECKER COUNTY, MINNESOTA - A woman is dead and a man injured following a collision between a car and semi on Highway 10 this afternoon.
Around 2 p.m., Duane and Arleen Hanson, both 86, were traveling eastbound on Highway 10 northwest of Detroit Lakes. According to the official report from the Minnesota State Patrol, they were attempting a turn near milepost 38 when their vehicle, a Buick 2005 LaSabre, was struck broadside by a semi traveling westbound.
Duane Hanson survived the crash with non-life-threatening injuries. Arleen is deceased.
The driver of the semi, 34-year-old Ryan Englehart of Jackson, Missouri, was uninjured.
The mother who has been charged with negligent homicide in the case has been released from custody after posting bail Friday morning.
West Fargo investigators say 32-year-old Reanne Pederson snorted hydrocodone before breastfeeding her infant--falling asleep and suffocating him. Now, grandmother Lisa Miller says she's trying to heal after losing the grandson she only held once.
