The Minnesota State Patrol says a woman trying to flag down help after her vehicle became disabled has been struck and killed on a northern Minnesota highway.

The patrol says 18-year-old Kimberly Lynn Loycano, of International Falls, was walking southbound on Highway 71 in Rainy Lake with other occupants of the disabled vehicle when she was struck about 10:45 p.m. Sunday.

Authorities say a 38-year-old man from Littlefork was driving the Ford Focus that hit her.
