The initial crash report said 83-year-old Gertrude Faber had been transported to Hennepin County Medical Center with life-threatening injuries following the wreck in Kandiyohi County Saturday afternoon. A Tuesday update of the report indicates Faber had succumbed to her injuries.
Faber was a passenger in a Ford Edge driven by 86-year-old August Faber, who was pronounced dead at the crash scene. The report says the Lake Lillian couple’s Edge was traveling west on Highway 7 and a GMC Yukon was traveling south on 195th Street southeast when the two vehicles collided at the intersection around 4:30 p.m.
The Yukon driver was identified as 35-year-old Jacob Dahlheimer of Faribault. The report indicates he died at the scene and was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
The report says August was also not buckled at the time of the crash. It’s unknown if alcohol use was a contributing factor in the deadly crash.
