A 66-year-old woman died in a crash with a cargo truck Monday.

Marlana D. Mogensen, from Howard Lake, was in a  heading southbound on Babcock Avenue in Winsted Township around 11:09 a.m., according to the Minnesota State Patrol. As she crossed Highway 7, she collided with an Isuzu cargo truck that was traveling east, authorities said.

Mogensen died at the scene, according to the State Patrol. 

The driver of the cargo truck, a 25-year-old Robbinsdale man, suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a Waconia hospital.

There were no passengers in either car, and the State Patrol said alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
