The victim has been identified as a 63-year-old woman.

A woman was killed while reportedly crossing a highway north of the Twin Cities.

It happened Friday night in Isanti County, one of two deadly pedestrian-vehicle incidents to occur in Minnesota over the weekend. 

According to the State Patrol, the 63-year-old woman was struck by a Dodge Caravan shortly before 9 p.m. on Highway 95 in Cambridge. The woman has been identified as Jennifer Cottrell, but the crash report does not specify her hometown.
