ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota State Patrol is investigating why a semi-truck driver did not stop before ramming a taxi sitting at a red light in St. Cloud, killing the cabdriver and one of his passengers.

The crash happened Saturday morning on Highway 10. The driver of the van operated by a taxi service, 66-year-old Thomas Findlay of Sartell, was killed, along with one of his passengers, 22-year-old Emily Letourneau of Big Lake.

The other passenger, a 24-year-old woman from New Hope, was in serious condition Sunday at St. Cloud Hospital.

The 61-year-old Owatonna man who was driving the semi was not hurt.

Patrol Lt. Tiffani Nielson tells the Star Tribune ( ) investigators say there is no indication the truck driver took any evasive action in the moments leading up to the crash.
