Authorities are investigating after a woman was killed by a car allegedly driven by her husband. Police say 57-year-old Diane Rawlings Meder was struck by her husband, 57-year-old David Christopher Meder, last Thursday night in Minnetonka Beach. The victim was transported to North Memorial Medical Center where she died from blunt force injuries. Her husband was taken into custody and faces a felony charge.
Starting August 1st, motorists who speed through a work zone and get caught will be fined 300-dollars. The goal is increased worker safety and Kristin Kammueller with the Minnesota Department of Transportation says surveys have shown the signs that say "fines double in work zones" were not as effective and if you show motorists that it will cost them 300-dollars if they're caught speeding in a work zone, that was more effective. Kammueller says the new law applies to work zones just about anywhere, including on county roads, city streets and state highways.
