PARK RAPIDS, Minn. -- A 16-year-old girl died Monday afternoon in a car-semi accident seven miles north of here, said the Minnesota State Patrol.

Jessica Banick of Fort Ripley, Minn., was northbound on Highway 71 when her vehicle lost control and crossed the center line, authorities said. Banick's vehicle was broadsided by a semi driven by Wayne Twait, 55, of Emmetsburg, Iowa.

The accident was reported at 5:09 p.m. Road conditions were icy, the patrol said. Twait was not injured. Both drivers wore seatbelts.

The Hubbard County Sheriff's Department received 11 other vehicle accident reports between 2:11 and 7:10 p.m. Monday because of slippery and slushy roads.

One accident resulted in minor injuries; the rest were property damage, the sheriff's department said.
