WCCO reports 49-year-old Sean Ray and his girlfriend, 49-year-old Judy Reid, both of Minnetonka, were driving to the funeral of Ray's father when they were killed in a crash on I-94 in near white-out conditions on Monday.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the car, driven by Reid, tried to pass a semi on the left and a plow along the right shoulder of westbound I-94 near Barnesville. The car hit the semi and the plow, came to a stop in the right lane and was struck from behind by a pickup.

Reid's mother, Jane, was told the couple was killed on impact. Ray's 16-year-old son, Evan, was critically injured and transported to a Fargo hospital.

Troopers delivered the tragic news to family members attending a memorial service for noted Moorhead artist Timothy Ray, KARE 11 reports.
