Mother, daughter killed after boulder falls off moving truck

Joe Czeck

Karen Christiansen, 67, was driving a Toyota Avalon north on Rich Valley Road about 4:50 p.m. when a boulder fell off a southbound truck, tumbled several times and hit her auto south of 125th Street, police said.

It took four firemen to lift the giant boulder, with police now trying to contact the truck driver who was behind the wheel at the time.

The truck then pulls out and continues to head south on Rich Valley Boulevard.

The Star Tribune reports Czeck, of Hastings, was arrested after police found his landscaping truck Wednesday night. Karen Jean Christiansen, 67, and her daughter Jena Helene Christiansen, 32, died while traveling in Rosemount, Minnesota on Monday around 4:40 p.m.

I didn't criticise Theresa May to The Sun
Trump praised May and her qualities, and said that he would be satisfied with whatever Brexit deal Britain struck with the EU. Asked about the status of the "special relationship", Trump said he would give it "the highest grade of special".

How Trump's meeting with Queen unfolded at Windsor Castle
As part of his ongoing working visit to the UK, Trump and his wife, first lady Melania Trump , will join the monarch for tea. As the red carpet was rolled out at Windsor Castle, thousands gathered at a "Stop Trump" rally in London's Trafalgar Square.

Trump disses 'fake news' CNN in joint press conference with May
She is honest as the day is long. "To issue a blanket condemnation of the network as "fake news" is ... unfair". CNN is fake news I don't take questions - I don't take questions from CNN".

"It's very traumatic for the families". "We don't see this type of accident every day". At a site off Minnesota 3 in the Inver Grove Heights-Eagan area, workers identified the truck as belonging to Czeck Services, a landscaping company, and said it had been there Monday picking up boulders. Video showed the truck laden with several large boulders. The vehicle sits in the driveway for about two minutes and then the driver turns the truck around.

"You're required by law to have whatever you are hauling secured in your vehicle", Scott told WCCO. "So if you have a pickup truck and you have a lawn mower or an ATV UTV inside, you are responsible to make sure it's secure". Czeck was arrested and was booked into Dakota County Jail, police said, adding that charges against him "are pending".
