Katie Seegmiller, also of Washington City, was extricated from the vehicle by the Cold Spring Fire Department and airlifted to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale. The sheriff's department said she had been reported missing by her parents on Jan. 23, and her whereabouts had been unknown at the time of the crash.

Cody Randall was her uncle and J.D. Randall was her cousin, the department said.

According to the initial release, the Randall's vehicle, a 2008 Mitsubishi Gallant, had been southbound on County Road 2 when the driver appeared to have lost control and slid sideways into the northbound lane near the intersection with Island Lake Road in Wakefield Township.

The Gallant was then struck by a 2002 Buick LeSabre driven by Sandra Hansen, 64, of Cold Spring. The crash sent the Gallant into the eastbound ditch where the vehicle rolled, ejecting Cody and J.D. Randall.

Hansen was also extricated from her vehicle and transported by ambulance to St. Cloud Hospital.
