The victims of Saturday's head-on collision on a snowy central Minnesota road were four members of a Columbia Heights family.

They are 45-year-old Christopher Moe; his 40-year old wife Rae Ann; and their two children, Samantha, 14; and Anthony, 12; the Minnesota State Patrol said Sunday afternoon.

The State Patrol says Christopher Moe was driving the Mazda Tribute SUV when it collided with a Chevrolet Suburban on State Highway 65 just south of Highway 18 in Aitkin County, KSTP reports.

Five people from McGregor were in the Suburban. Three of them, including the driver, 26-year-old Nicholas Meyer, were seriously injured. Another adult suffered less serious injuries and a 2-year-old was unhurt, the Patrol says.
