BENSON, Minn. (KNSI)  Authorities have identified the person killed in a three-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 12 in Swift County Tuesday night.

Nineteen year-old Kayla Wrobleski was killed in the accident three miles east of Benson.

The State Patrol says Wrobleski was driving a car that was stopped on the highway as she was about to turn left onto a gravel road. She was rear-ended by another car, and pushed into the opposite lane of traffic where she was hit by an oncoming truck.

Two people in the second car were taken to the Swift County-Benson Hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The truck driver--a 65 year-old Wadena man--was not injured.
