Woman Dies In Car Crash Days Before Husband's Funeral

DEERWOOD, Minn. (AP) -- A woman has died in a crash in Crow Wing County just days before her husband's funeral.

The Minnesota State Patrol says a Crosby man crossed the centerline on Highway 6 near Deerwood Wednesday and hit the woman's car head on. Seventy-year-old Barbara Jo Blood died at the scene.

The driver of the car that crossed over suffered critical injuries. He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis.

A funeral for Blood's husband -- John Blood, who died March 15 -- was scheduled for Saturday, but now has been postponed.
