Mother, daughter killed after boulder falls off moving truck

Mother, daughter killed after boulder falls off moving truck

A Minnesota woman and her mother were killed after a boulder came loose from a moving vehicle and crushed their auto.

Christiansen and her 32-year-old daughter, Jena Christiansen, who was in the front passenger seat, both died at the scene.

Two women in Minnesota are dead and a contractor is facing two counts of vehicular homicide after a horrific accident, police say.

Surveillance video from nearby businesses shows Czeck's truck carrying the large, unsecured boulder while traveling south on Rich Valley Boulevard.

"We feel that he knew, but ... we don't know what he was thinking", Rosemount Police Chief Mitchell Scott told the Minnesota Star Tribune. Scott said the boulder likely dislodged from the truck as it drove over a railroad crossing. As the vehicle's tires bounced on the tracks, the impact jostled a huge boulder - with an estimated weight of reportedly 800-pounds - free from the bed. "We're just kind of putting that all together, making sure we're doing our due diligence and doing a thorough investigation". The vehicle sits in the driveway for about two minutes and then the driver turns the truck around.

Ryan Killian, the boyfriend of Jena Christiansen, released a statement on her death Wednesday night to WCCO.

Jena's boyfriend, Ryan Killian, released a statement to local news outlet WCCO saying she was "the most wonderful person I have ever met".

Adding, 'She was so smart and handsome. "She loved her family so much, she had an unbelievable sense of humor". "She had an unbelievable sense of humor I literally have spent hours just talking to her".

Czeck allegedly fled the scene, but police told reporters that construction workers were able to identify the truck as belonging to Czeck Services.

According to Kilian, Jena Christiansen was manager of several Red Lobster restaurants. You can see the boulder's in the back. "She was with the company for over 15 years".
