A 35-year-old woman was killed and two young children were injured when two SUVs collided in central Minnesota Tuesday night.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the crash happened around 6 p.m. in Foley when a Yukon crossed the center line and struck a Tahoe.


The Tahoe's driver, identified as 35-year-old Lindsay Cardinal, was killed. Two passengers—a 1-year-old and 4-year-old —were both injured.

The state patrol identified the driver of the Yukon as 29-year-old Kevin Gordon Couch from Milaca. Authorities say alcohol was involved and that he suffered life-threatening injuries.

Authorities also say there was a 24-year-old passenger in the Yukon who also suffered life threatening injuries. She was transported to North Memorial.

A Cardinal Benefit Fund has been set up at Falcon National Bank in Foley.

A GoFundMe has been set up for the Cardinal family.
