A head-on crash has left one person dead and two people injured. Deputies from the Anoka County Sheriff’s office responded to the call at the 9400 block of Viking Boulevard Northeast in Linwood at 7:23 p.m. on Friday.
Kevin Lovdal, of Lindstrom, was pronounced dead on the scene. His passenger, Jody Lovdal, was airlifted to Regions Hospital in critical condition. Jody was treated and released.
The driver of the second vehicle, Lynn Filla, from Linwood Township, was airlifted to North Memorial hospital. Filla remains in critical condition.
Early investigation suggests Filla crossed the center line when she struck the other vehicle, according to the Sheriff's office. The accident was still being cleared just after midnight and is still under investigation by the Minnesota State Patrol and the Anoka County Sheriff’s office.
