Driver going west in eastbound lane dies in alcohol-related crash

It happened on Hwy. 10 in Clear Lake Township.

A woman driving in the wrong direction was killed in a crash near St. Cloud late Friday night. 

The Minnesota State Patrol says a Nissan Altima driven by a 31-year-old woman from Avon, Minnesota was traveling westbound in the eastbound lanes of Hwy. 10 when it struck a Ford pickup truck near the 100th Ave. SE intersection in Clear Lake Township. 

The driver of the truck suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening and was transported to St. Cloud Hospital for treatment. 

The State Patrol is still investigating but says alcohol was likely a factor in the crash. 

The name of the victim has not been identified.
