Correction: While we initially reported he had died, the boy involved in the crash is currently being kept on life support so that his organs may be harvested.

A 14-year-old boy was killed in a three-car collision in Scott County that was reportedly caused by an SUV running a stop sign.

The Scott County Sheriff's Office says the collision happened at the intersection of 185th Street East and Natchez Avenue in Credit River Township, between Prior Lake and Lakeville, at 9:16 a.m. Sunday.

Witnesses told police that a black Jeep Cherokee, driven by a 42-year-old woman from Faribault, didn't stop as it approached the intersection heading north on Natchez Avenue.

She continued into the intersection where she broadsided a black Ford Taurus traveling east on 185th St.

A blue Nissan Pathfinder, driven by a 46-year-old Lakeville woman, was following the Taurus and crashed into the Jeep.

The 14-year-old boy was in the front passenger seat of the Taurus, and the Star Tribune is reporting he is being kept on life support so that his organs may be harvested, with services due to be held this weekend in Prior Lake.

On Monday afternoon, the Scott County Sheriff's Office identified the boy as Samuel Foltz, of Prior Lake.. The Taurus was being driven by 48-year-old Jason Foltz.

The driver of the Taurus, Jeep and Nissan were all taken to hospital for treatment on various injuries.

Alcohol is not thought to have been a factor in the crash, which is being investigated by the Minnesota State Patrol and the Scott County Sheriff's Office.
