From the Burnett County Sheriff's Office:

"On 12-27-2021, at approximately 11:22 am, the Burnett County Sheriff’s Office responded to a two-car head-on crash on STH 70 in Sand Lake Township. Upon investigation, it appeared that a Chrysler Town and Country minivan, traveling westbound, had crossed the centerline and collided with a Honda Civic that was traveling east. The driver of the Honda Civic was trapped in the vehicle and extrication was needed. There were five people injured in the crash. Three helicopters were utilized in transporting patients as well as several ambulances. The Sheriff’s Office was later notified that the driver of the Honda Civic passed away from injuries sustained in the crash. It appeared that weather and road conditions were a factor in causing the crash. The names of the parties involved are currently being withheld.

We would like to thank North Ambulance, North Air Care, Lifelink Air Care, Siren Fire Department, Webster Fire Department, St. Croix Hertel Fire Department, Burnett County Highway Department, and St. Croix Tribal Police Department for the care and investigation of this crash."
