Crosby Area Woman Dies in Two Vehicle, Crow Wing County Accident


A Crosby area woman was killed in a two vehicle accident, in Crow Wing County, three days before her husband’s funeral.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, Barbara Jo Blood, 70, was killed, when the eastbound 2009 Chrysler 300 she was driving was stuck by a westbound 2006 Chevrolet Malibu driven by Timothy David Kruse, 54, of Crosby.

Officials say Kruse’s vehicle crossed the center line, on Highway 6, striking the Chrysler head-on in Deerwood Township. Kruse was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center and treated for injuries troopers at the scene describe as life threatening.

Both were wearing their seat-belts and road conditions were listed as dry at the time of the accident, reported just before 7 in the morning yesterday.

Officials say alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
