One person has died as a result of a multiple car accident at the intersection of County Road 101 and Bass Lake Road (County Road 10) Wednesday night in Maple Grove.

The Maple Grove Police Department was called to the scene around 5:30 p.m. Oct. 31 on the report of a multi-vehicle accident involving three vehicles.

The accident involved a minivan, Ford Escape and pickup truck pulling an empty horse trailer, according to a KARE11 report, which stated the “jaws of life” needed to be used by emergency crews on one of the vehicles.

I am comforted to see people writing about this poor lady here. It seems she is no where else to be found. No obituary, no funeral announcement. A few mentions here and there about the accident. Certainly this woman had a life. She had five kids, what is to happen to them? I usually think of life as pretty tough, it doesn't leave without a fight. Yet for Tyan it was over in a second. To those of you who knew her, cherish her memory. For those babies, tell them how wonderful their mama was. For me and mine, we will always wonder how this could happen. Rest in peace Tyan Taylor. We weep and pray for for you.

Tyan is my sister and I would like to thank everyone for their kind words about my sister. She was a beautiful person with a big heart and loved her children dearly. Every time I look at my nieces and nephews my heart breaks because I know how much she means to them and how much they miss her. We are all taking it day by day. We talk about her, laugh at all the good memories we have and wish we had her back. RIP my beautiful sister. We all love you and know you are in moms arms.
