State Patrol: Speeding driver fatally strikes woman in gas station parking lot near Mille Lacs Lake

The woman was leaving the store when she was struck.

A Brainerd woman was fatally struck in the parking lot of a gas station located on the south shore of Mille Lacs Lake by a speeding motorist Thursday evening, according to the Minnesota State Patrol. 

Per the crash report: 

A 69-year-old Isle, Minnesota, woman was driving a Chevy Silverado just before 6:30 p.m. "at a high rate of speed" through the Super Stop parking lot off of Highway 169 in South Harbor Township, Mille Lacs County, when she struck a woman who was leaving the store. 

The victim, 72-year-old Gloria M. Rosekrans, of Brainerd, suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene, the State Patrol said. 

The driver and two 12-year-old children who were in the Silverado all sustained non-critical injuries and were taken to Mille Lacs Health System in Onamia for care. 

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, the State Patrol said.
