Authorities have released the names of two people killed in a three-vehicle crash over the weekend.
MSP troopers from the Mt. Pleasant post were dispatched about 1 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 7 to a three vehicle crash at the intersection of Mackinaw Trail and 11 Mile Road in Lincoln Township.
Investigators found a 2007 Ford Focus, driven by 68-year-old Maxine Mariann Joseph from Lake, was traveling eastbound when it stopped at the intersection of 11 Mile Road and Mackinaw Trail.
The Ford Focus then crossed Mackinaw Trail into the path of a northbound 2007 Dodge Caliber, police said.
When the two vehicles crashed, a third vehicle - a 2009 Chevy Aveo that stopped on westbound 11 Mile Road - was hit during the collision.
Joseph died at the scene.
Her 70-year-old passenger, Gary William Carr from Lake, suffered critical injuries, police said.
He was taken by Osceola County EMS to Spectrum Reed City Hospital where he later died from his injuries.
The drivers in the other vehicles were taken by EMS to the hospital for treatment and released.
MSP is still investigating the crash.
