MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The 43-year-old woman killed in a crash in Elko-New Market, Minn. has been identified.

The Minnesota State Patrol said Darlene Blake, of Faribault, Minn. was killed after a vehicle merged in front of her car, causing her vehicle to go into the shoulder.

Authorities say Blake then over-corrected, went through the median and was struck by a 2011 Honda CRV.

The crash happened around 2 p.m. Monday in the northbound lanes of Interstate 35 in Scott County.

The driver of the Honda — a 32-year-old from New Market — has not been identified. Officials say that victim is in critical condition.
