A Stacy couple was killed in a two-vehicle crash on Lexington Avenue in Ham Lake Wednesday morning, June 5.

The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office identified the victims as Richard Allan McGill and Deanna Kaye McGill, both 71.

Jay Terell Mottley of Maplewood was in critical condition when transported to the Hennepin County Medical Center after the accident, according to Cmdr. Paul Sommer of the Anoka County Sheriff’s Office. Mottley’s current condition is unknown.

Nobody witnessed the crash on Lexington Avenue near Lever Street, Sommer said, but a passerby saw the smashed-up vehicles and called 911 at 8:30 a.m. The accident is still under investigation.

The McGills were in a 2010 Ford Fusion and pronounced dead at the scene. Mottley was extricated by the Ham Lake Fire Department from his 2004 Toyota Highlander he was driving.

The sheriff’s office and the Blaine Police Department put out a fire under the Toyota’s hood, but the fire did not get inside the vehicle, Sommer said.

Roads were wet but otherwise in good condition, Sommer said.
