WABASHA, Minn. (AP) - A 19-year-old woman has died in a skiing accident in Wabasha.

Authorities say Bethany Becker, of Corcoran, died after hitting a tree on one of the more advanced runs at Coffee Mill Ski Area Saturday.

KTTC-TV reports Becker failed to make a turn toward the bottom of the slope and hit the tree. An ambulance crew began transporting her to Mayo Clinic-Saint Marys and met the Mayo helicopter along the way at Plainview.
