A 14-year-old girl was killed and another is in a critical condition after a high speed crash in western Wisconsin Monday evening.
A 16-year-old boy was driving a car "at a high rate of speed" in Barron County around 7 p.m. when he allegedly lost control, causing it to roll several times.
Three teenage girls — aged 15, 14 and 14 — were passengers in the vehicle at the time. Two of them were flown by helicopter to Regions Hospital in St. Paul and were listed in a critical condition, with the other flown to Marshfield Hospital with serious injuries.
On Tuesday morning, the Barron County Sheriff's Office confirmed one of the girls listed as being in a critical condition had died.
The crash happened on 16½ Ave. near 19¾ St., north of Cameron, Wisconsin.
The boy driving the vehicle was treated for minor injuries and taken into custody on pending charges of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of a controlled substance causing injury.
The case has been sent to the Barron County District Attorney's Office for review.
The crash remains under investigation.
