An 84-year-old Alexandria woman was killed in a crash on Interstate 35 in Carlton County on Sunday afternoon. The Minnesota State Patrol reports that Darlene Ann Lewis-Lucas was attempting to make a U-turn from southbound I-35 using the interstate's median crossover and was struck by a truck traveling southbound on I-35 in Twin Lakes Township at about 3:12 p.m. Sunday. The truck's driver, Daniel Wenstrom Shank, 38, of St. Paul, and passenger, Benjamin Murdoch Tejones Shank, 2, of St. Paul, weren't injured in the crash, according to the State Patrol.
The Duluth Police Department on Tuesday asked for the public's help in identifying at least two individuals allegedly involved in the theft of three deer stands from an area near Observation Road. The suspects were captured on trail cameras in the area. The stands were stolen on Sept. 11, but reported to police on Oct. 5 because that was the first time the hunter had gone back to check the trail cams.
