A crash report from the Minnesota State Patrol says the deadly collision involved alcohol and happened on Hwy. 59 at Park Ave. in Chippewa County, near the town of Watson. 

The Escalade was traveling north on the highway at approximately 5:51 p.m. when the 1995 Saturn took a hard left turn in front of it, with the Escalade hitting the smaller car on the passenger side.

The passenger in the Saturn was pronounced dead at the scene. She has been identified as 20-year-old Brittany Lynn Schulz, of Appleton, Minnesota.
