NEW RICHMOND— A 77-year-old died Monday as a result from injuries sustained in a crash in St. Croix County last month, according to a news release from the St. Croix County Sheriff. 

Judith Claire Olson, of New Richmond, died June 7 at Regions Hospital, according to the Ramsey County medical Examiner’s officer. 

The accident occurred at 12:14 p.m. May 20 when Olson’s vehicle was struck at Highway 65 and 210th Avenue in the town of Stanton. She was traveling eastbound when she was struck by a vehicle driving by Charles R. Carlson, 44, of Cumberland. 

Preliminary investigation by the St. Croix County Sheriff’s Department indicates Carlson had the right of way at the time of the crash. 

Olson was transported to Westfields Hospital in New Richmond before being airlifted to Regions by North Air Care. 

Carlson sustained minor injuries in the crash and was not transported. 

Both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. 

New Richmond EM, New Richmond Police and New Richmond Fire also responded to the accident. 

This is the third traffic fatality recorded by the sheriff’s office this year.
