The Minnesota State Patrol reported that Carney Lien was driving a 2013 Chevrolet Cruze east on Highway 2 near Alice Road, about four miles east of Grand Rapids, at about 12:45 p.m. when a large rock went through the windshield. Lien lost control of the vehicle and the car vaulted over a driveway.

Lien was taken to Grand Itasca Clinic and Hospital in Grand Rapids, then airlifted to Essentia Health-St. Mary’s Medical Center in Duluth with what the Patrol said were serious injuries.

The Patrol did not release information about where the rock may have come from.
