Two people were killed in a Memorial Day crash in Stanchfield Township when their vehicle drifted off of Highway 65 and hit a tree.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a 2020 Jeep Gladiator was traveling southbound on Highway 65 at Rice Lake Road when it drifted across the northbound lanes of traffic and went into the ditch on the northeast side of the highway and collided with a tree on May 25 at 6:39 p.m.

According to the State Patrol, the driver, 16-year-old Abigail Lucele Grabow from St. Paul, and her mother, 51-year-old Amy Prince Grabow from Grant, were killed.

The three other passengers included 44-year-old Clinton William Grabow from Birchwood who sustained non-life threatening injuries; 14-year-old Stella Jean Grabow from Grant who was uninjured; and 12-year-old Vivian Mae Grabow from Grant, who sustained life threatening injuries and was transported to Hennepin County Medical Center. The driver, and all four passengers, were wearing their seat belts and alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
