Truck driver charged after mother, daughter killed by flying boulder

Christiansen, 67, was driving with Jena H. Christiansen, 32, in a 2002 Toyota Avalon when the incident occurred, Rosemount police said in a news release.

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 vehicle south of 125th Street, police said.

Rosemount Police Chief Mitchell Scott called the accident a "very unique situation".

"I think you would have to know that it fell off the truck", said Scott.

The medical examiner's office says both women hailing from Shoreview died at the scene from blunt force head trauma.

Scott said the tragedy is a reminder of the law. "You're required by law to have whatever you are hauling secured in your vehicle", he says, per WCCO. 'So if you have a lawn mower or an ATV, UTV inside, you are responsible to make sure it's secure'.
