ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota State Patrol says charges are likely against a semi driver who struck a taxi at a St. Cloud intersection, killing two people.

The driver of the van operated by Elite Taxi and one of two passengers in the vehicle were killed Saturday when the semi rear-ended the cab which was waiting for a red light on Highway 10 and St. Germain St.

State Patrol Lt. Tiffani Nielson tells the Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/2mXFq4u ) there’s no indication the taxi driver took any action to avoid the collision. Killed in the crash were 66-year-old Thomas Findlay, of Sartell, the cab driver, and 22-year-old Emily LeTourneau, of Big Lake, a passenger. The other passenger, a 24-year-old woman from New Hope, was taken to St. Cloud Hospital where she’s in serious condition.
