Sixty-seven-year-old Karen Christiansen and her 32-year-old daughter, Jena Christiansen, died at the scene. According to WABC, the boulder weighed several hundred pounds and the pair inside the damaged vehicle were mother and daughter.

It isn't clear whether Czeck was aware that the boulder fell off of the truck, but local police say that they suspect he knew something was amiss.

The mother and daughter, both of Shoreview, Minnesota, died from blunt force head trauma, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office said. The vehicle sits in the driveway for about two minutes and then the driver turns the truck around.

A short distance later, the truck stops again and sits idle for about one to two minutes before proceeding again, the complaint states.

Investigators were able to determine the truck belonged to Czeck Services, which led them to the driver. "What's sad about this is it could have been prevented", Scott told WCCO.

The Star Tribune reports Czeck, of Hastings, was arrested after police found his landscaping truck Wednesday night. Czeck's next court appearance is set for October 4 in Hastings. "You're required by law to have whatever you are hauling secured in your vehicle", he says, per WCCO. 'So if you have a lawn mower or an ATV, UTV inside, you are responsible to make sure it's secure'.

Jena's boyfriend, Ryan Kilian, said, "The world has lost an angel".

"She is the most incredible person I have ever met", he said.

Adding, 'She was so smart and lovely.

'She made me the man I am today I would be nothing without her. He never contacted authorities about the crash and refused to give a statement to police, once arrested, according to the charges.
