A Cloquet woman died in a crash on I-35 in Chisago County Wednesday, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Julie Koen, 54, died in the one-vehicle crash on I-35 at County Road 17, which is between North Branch and Stacy, just after 7 p.m.  The Patrol says Koen was ejected from a pickup truck that lost control and rolled into the center median.  She was a passenger in the vehicle.

The truck was being driven by a 16-year-old female from Iowa, who is a relative of Koen.  The driver and her 47-year-old father suffered non life-threatening injuries in the crash.
