WINONA, Minn. (AP) – A Wisconsin woman was critically injured when her minivan collided with a cow on a Minnesota interstate.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the van driven by 36-year-old Svetlana Schmitz, of La Crosse, hit the cow on Interstate 90 near Lewiston in Winona County about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. She was taken by helicopter to St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester.

A 62-year-old passenger, also from La Crosse, suffered non-life threatening injuries and was treated at St. Mary’s.

The Winona Daily News reports both were wearing seat belts.
