Norwood-Young America Woman Dies in Crash


A Norwood-Young America woman is dead after a two-vehicle crash west of Chaska in Carver County Wednesday morning.

The State Patrol says 75-year-old Bonnielee Pope died at the scene.

The Patrol says Pope was driving a pickup and was stationary on the right shoulder facing west bound on Highway 212 when she attempted to make a U-turn to go east bound and was unaware of an approaching semi truck. As a result, the semi truck t-boned the pickup.

The driver of the semi, 43-year-old Trevor Hogan of South St. Paul, received minor injuries.

The crash happened at about 10am west of Jonathan Carver Parkway in Dahlgren Township.
