CHERRY TOWNSHIP, Minn. — A 58-year-old Iron, Minnesota, woman was killed when her car was T-boned along Minnesota Highway 37 on Tuesday morning.

The State Patrol reported that Denise Ann Tramontin was northbound on Hartman Road, near Cherry School, when her 2018 Honda Fit went through a stop sign and entered the highway just before 8:30 a.m.

An eastbound Jeep Wrangler driven by Madison Michelle Kahl, 24, of Hibbing, struck Tramontin's vehicle in the driver's side, killing her, according to the incident report.

Kahl and a 13-year-old passenger sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The State Patrol reported that all parties were wearing seat belts, alcohol did not appear to be a factor and conditions were dry at the time of the crash.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
