Cass Lake woman killed in crash

A 34-year-old Cass Lake woman was killed Friday night in a rural Cass County crash.

Deputies from the Cass County Sheriff’s Office and other first responders arrived at 140th St. NW in Wilkinson Township and found a Chevy Impala that struck a tree.

An autopsy is scheduled with the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office and the crash remains under investigation.

The Leech Lake Tribal Police Department, Minnesota State Patrol, Leech Lake Ambulance and the Cass Lake Fire Department assisted at the scene.
