Woman dies after ATV crash in Carlton County

A woman died at the hospital after a crash Saturday morning in Carlton County.

Deputies say the woman was among a group traveling in the area of County Road 139 and County Road 6 in Barnum Township, Minnesota.

Investigators say it appears the victim, a woman in her 40s, lost control while trying to stop at the intersection.

Deputies say it appears that kicked-up dust on the gravel road made visibility low as the woman approached the intersection.

The woman was airlifted to a hospital in Duluth where she later died. Deputies say she was wearing a helmet and alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.

The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
