The Minnesota State Patrol has identified a paramedic killed when the ambulance she was riding in crashed into a stalled semi on Interstate 694 in Brooklyn Center Monday. Sara DuPaul, a Minnesota State Trooper, said the semi stalled at about 6:45 p.m. in the apex near the split with Interstate 94. She said about 15 minutes later the semi was being towed when an ambulance came from I-694 and attempted to merge, striking the back of the semi. One of the ambulance crew members, 24-year-old Marina Gayle Desteno Challeen of St. Paul, died at the scene. The 27-year-old driver of the ambulance suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was brought to North Memorial Hospital.
