The Minnesota State Patrol is looking for the driver of a Ford Explorer potentially involved in a fatal crash this week in Blue Earth County. 

The State Patrol says 20-year-old Jalynn Williams of Mankato, Minn., was killed in the crash. She was a passenger in an Chevy Blazer driven by a 26-year-old man, also from Mankato.

Troopers say the SUV and a Ford Explorer were both driving eastbound on Highway 60 near Lake Crystal, Minn., around 4:30 p.m. Monday. The State Patrol says the Ford may have hit Williams' vehicle, which rolled over in a ditch. The Ford went into the median, but then kept driving east. 

The State Patrol is circulating an image of what might have been the suspect vehicle, taken by a dash cam of a patrol vehicle in the area at the time. 

Troopers are asking for the public's help in locating the driver. If anyone has information, contact the State Patrol at 507-344-2750.
