Rosemount police said 67-year-old Karen Jean Christiansen and her daughter Jena Helene Christiansen, 32, died in the crash, which occurred around 4:40 p.m. on Rich Valley Boulevard.

- A boulder fell off a commercial truck on a road in Rosemount, Minn, hitting a auto and killing the two people inside, according to Rosemount police.

"If you tried to duplicate this millions of times - I don't think you'd be able to do that - I think it was a very unique situation", Rosemount Police Chief Mitchell Scott told KSTP.

The driver of the truck was identified as Joe P. Czeck.

Police told WCCO the stone hit the auto with such force during the accident on Monday that it tore right through the vehicle and ripped its roof off.

Investigators believe that the boulder was not sufficiently secured to Czeck's truck.
