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. 

Jorgenson was transported to the hospital and died Oct. 4 while receiving inpatient care at Hennepin Healthcare.
