Penny Sue Magnuson (42) of Kerrick was killed in a collision with a semi on Hwy-23 on Friday (Feb. 4), and funeral services are planned for today.

The Pine City Pioneer reports that Magnuson was driving westbound when she swerved into the path of an oncoming semi truck, and upon impact, both vehicles were forced off the road and into a ditch.

Three children between the ages of five and 15 were also in the car at the time of the crash, but luckily they survived with minimal injuries. The Pioneer also reports that driver of the semi, 55-year old Karl Hansen of Duluth, was uninjured.

Magnuson later died at the hopsital, and is survived by her husband Richard Magnuson of Kerrick and six children. Funeral services are scheduled for this afternoon at 2pm at Living Hope Church in Mora.
