MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A 92-year-old woman died after suffering injuries in a two-car collision Thursday morning in Minneapolis, authorities said.

The collision happened at the intersection of 27th Avenue and Lake Street.

The deceased and another woman were traveling west on Lake Street. They attempted to make a left turn onto 27th Avenue when they pulled out in front of a driver, who collided with their car, Minneapolis police said.

The woman suffered serious injuries in the collision. Crews brought her to the Hennepin County Medical Center, where she later died.

After the crash, authorities closed sections of both Lake Street and 27th Avenue. They have since been reopened to traffic.

No other injuries have been reported. The woman’s name has not been released.

          Nursing home. ha ha. The GOP will start killing us. We cost them to much money. They want to get them and the rich richer.

      Maybe I missed something, but where does it say the 92 year old was driving??? From my view of the video, it looks like the passenger side of the car took the brunt of impact, so my guess would be this is where the 92 year old was sitting…

        WCCO has a “tendency” to rewrite their stories, often making postings sound absurd…

    I knew the woman who was killed, she was the passenger. Please be respectful, this lady was a hoot!! She had survived breast cancer, was almost blind and deaf, and still loved life. She was one of the funniest most genuine people I’ve ever met. It’s hard not to make judgements when you don’t know all the details, but please refrain from making comments when you don’t have the full story about what happened.
