ALBERT LEA, Minn. (KTTC) -- The Albert Lea community is supporting the family of 16-year-old Grace Zimmerman, who died in a crash with a semi-truck Monday afternoon.

Grace was driving east on County Road 14 when she collided with a semi-truck. Road conditions were wet at the time, and snow was falling in the area.

Grace was a student at Albert Lea High School and on the varsity dance team, according to Principal Mark Grossklaus. There is staff available for any students who need guidance and support, as the community processes the loss.

A GoFundMe account has been created to help the family. It has raised thousands of dollars and is growing by the hour.
