There was one fatality from a two-vehicle crash that happened at approximately 3:24 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 2, at the intersection of Highway 13 and Scott County Road 64, near St. Patrick, seven miles northeast of New Prague.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, two people had to be transported, with one airlifted from the scene. Freda Dilys Hill, 81, of Eden Prairie, was airlifted to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale, where she later died. The second person was Georgia Gorman Dickinson, 87, of Richfield. She received what were described as minor injuries. She was transported by New Prague Ambulance to Queen of Peace Hospital in New Prague.

The two women were passengers in a 1992 Mercury Sable, driven by James Edward St. Jackques, 61, of Vadnais Heights. St. Jackques was northbound on Highway 13 when he stopped to make a left turn onto Scott County Road 64. The second vehicle, a 1994 Chevy Corsica, driven by a 17-year old juvenile female of New Prague, also northbound on Highway 13, rear-ended the Sable, sending it into the east side ditch. The driver’s name was not released.

A third vehicle, a truck from Priority 1 Lawn Sprinklers of Shakopee, swerved to avoid the first two vehicles. The truck avoided the vehicles, but the trailer behind it came off and rolled onto to its top in the west ditch.

The New Prague Fire Department and Scott County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene.
