Authorities have identified a woman who died when the all-terrain vehicle she was riding on crashed into a tree in central Minnesota.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner said Kayla Lien, 19, Foley, Minn., died of blunt-force injuries Thursday.

The Benton County Sheriff's office said Lien was the passenger on the ATV when it crashed shortly after 7 p.m. in a housing development in Duelm, Minn., which is about 12 miles east of Sauk Rapids, Minn.

Authorities said the driver of the ATV, Macy McCormick, 18, Foley, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Neither Lien nor McCormick was wearing a helmet.
