A young boy suffered life-threatening injuries in a crash involving an SUV and semi Wednesday morning.
The 9-year-old boy, from Granite Falls, was a passenger in a 2017 Dodge Journey that was eastbound on Highway 212 in Renville just before 10:15 a.m., according to the State Patrol.
A semi driver, at the same time, was heading southbound on County Road 6.
The SUV and semi then collided in the intersection, the State Patrol said.
The 9-year-old boy suffered life-threatening injuries and was taken to Olivia Hospital.
The SUV's driver, a 27-year-old woman, and a second passenger, a 9-year-old girl, suffered non-life threatening injuries and were also taken to Olivia Hospital. Both are also from Granite Falls.
The State Patrol says preliminary information suggests neither child was wearing a seat belt.
The driver of the semi, a 54-year-old Redwood Falls man, was uninjured.
Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor. The State Patrol said roads were wet at the time.
