Two teenagers who were killed in separate crashes in Hutchinson and Corcoran have been identified.
Garrett Riley Car Damlow, 18, of Hutchinson, was a passenger in a vehicle that crashed on Yacht Avenue in Hutchinson just before 3 p.m. on July 29. He died from multiple blunt force injuries at the hospital at 4:26 p.m. on Aug. 1, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner said.
Damlow's obituary says he loved farming, being outside and had an interest in trucks. He liked to hunt, play X-Box, watch Netflix, eat Toaster Scramblers and enjoyed "just staying busy."
According to the McLeod County Sheriff's Office, the fatal crash involved two vehicles driven by a 19-year-old from Hutchinson and a 20-year-old from Glencoe. Two people were transported to the hospital, with the sheriff's office noting "most" of the people in the two vehicles were wearing their seatbelts.
Teen killed in Corcoran rollover crash
Ayriona Marie Derheim, 17, of Big Lake, died at the scene after the pickup truck she was driving went off the road and rolled on Oakdale Drive near Jefferey Lane in Corcoran at 6:35 p.m. on Aug. 2. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner says she died of penetrating and blunt force injuries sustained in the crash.
Derheim was driving with two other juveniles at the time of the crash, police said. They were both injured – one was treated at the scene, while the other was seriously injured and had to be taken by North Memorial Air Care to the hospital. Their condition is not known.
According to Derheim's obituary, she went to school at Wright Technical Center, loved animals – especially horses, and enjoyed fishing and hunting. Onna, as she was called, "will always be remembered as an outgoing, strong-willed, artistic, smart, confident, kind, loving, fearless" and a risk-taker.
In honor of her love of animals, her family is requesting memorials be given to the Minnesota Hooved Animal Rescue Foundation in Zimmerman.
