This story also serves as a reminder to secure larger items properly before putting them in a vehicle. The Star Tribune reports Czeck is charged in Dakota County with criminal vehicular homicide and criminal vehicular operation. "She made me the man I am today, I would be nothing without her", Killian said. "She would do anything for anyone who needed help, she loved her family so much, she had an awesome sense of humour". "She had an wonderful sense of humor I literally have spent hours just talking to her", Kilian wrote to 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS.

Following the boulder's impact, police investigators pulled camera footage from the roads near the crash site, the Pioneer Press reported.

Investigators were able to determine the truck belonged to Czeck Services, which led them to the driver. "She was with the company for over 15 years".
