The crash happened on October 1.

A two-vehicle crash in Bloomington earlier this month resulted in the death of a 103-year-old passenger, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office announced Thursday. 

The crash happened at 1:24 p.m. on Oct. 1 on W. 98th St. at E. Bloomington Freeway in Bloomington.

According to the medical examiner, 103-year-old Josephine I. Jorgenson, of Jordan, was a passenger in a vehicle that was hit by another vehicle. Crash details beyond that have not been released, but Bloomington Police are investigating it as an accident.
