On January 26, 2019, at approximately 6:00 p.m., St. Louis County Deputies responded to the 5000 block of Rice Lake Road for a report of a two vehicle crash. When deputies arrived, they learned that a truck being operated by a 30 year old Duluth man was traveling North on Rice Lake Road when he crossed over the center line colliding, nearly head on, with a Toyota Prius that was occupied by a 19 year old male from Cross Lake, Minnesota and a 21 year old female from Woodbury, Minnesota.
Recent discussions about the need for emergency warming centers has brought a new level of awareness to the issue of homelessness in our region during these brutally cold winter months.
How many people are in this situation, as “unsheltered homeless”, is the focus of an annual count, which St. Louis County’s Public Health and Human Service Department is conducting tomorrow. The County is working with community service providers and agencies to complete a federally required Point in Time Homeless Count. The purpose is to identify people who are homeless and not staying in a shelter tonight, January 23, 2019.
