1 dead, 1 critically injured after rear-end crash in Rochester

The crash happened just after 9 p.m. Saturday.

A 27-year-old woman died and a man was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash Saturday night in Rochester, Minnesota. 

The city's police department reported Sunday that the crash happened just after 9 p.m. at the intersection of 18th Ave. NW at Crimson Ridge NW.  

Police say the driver of a Jeep Wrangler rear-ended a Toyota Corolla that was turning on to 18th Ave. The driver of the Corolla, identified as 27-year-old Luis Rubio Lunar, was not seriously injured, but his wife, 24-year-old Joharmi Rubio, died at the scene. 

The driver of the Wrangler, a 27-year-old man, wasn't wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle, suffering serious injuries. He was transported to May Clinic-St. Marys Campus in Rochester where he was listed in critical condition. 

No further information has been released.
