The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office has identified a Perham woman fatally injured in a head-on crash Monday as 37-year-old Tristen Lee-Dolan.

Lee-Dolan was driving a 2003 Pontiac minivan on County Road 8 near Little Pine Lake at 8:14 a.m. when it collided head-on with a Dodge Caravan driven by 59-year-old Mary Swyter of Perham, the sheriff's office said in a news release.

Lee-Dolan was fatally injured in the crash. Her passengers, 4-year-old Mason Dolen and 8-year-old Sienna Dolen, were injured and taken by ambulance to Perham Memorial Hospital, where they were treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Swyter suffered fractured ankles and was treated at the Perham hospital and transferred to an undisclosed facility.

Icy road conditions were believed to be a factor in the accident, which is under investigation by the sheriff's office and Minnesota State Patrol.
