FOLEY, Minn. (AP) — Benton County authorities say a father and daughter were killed and two others were hurt after the family’s minivan was broadsided by a car that failed to halt at a stop sign.

Chief Deputy Troy Heck tells KNSI-AM it happened at County Roads 4 and 7 just east of Foley around 3:45 p.m. Tuesday in central Minnesota.

Heck says investigators determined a 19-year-old Pierz man drove through a stop sign and slammed into the minivan.

The minivan driver, 66-year-old Jerome Knutson, of Foreston, died at the scene, as did his daughter, 41-year-old Ronda Bouma, of Foley. His wife, 67-year-old Joan Knutson, suffered serious injuries. The other driver was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Heck says investigators don’t believe alcohol or drugs played a factor in the crash.
