Austin Girl Airlifted to Rochester After ATV Crash
Austin, MN (KROC-AM News) - A six-year-old Austin girl suffered a serious head injury in an ATV crash earlier this week.
The Freeborn County Sheriff's office says the young girl was riding on a four-wheeler driven by her 12-year-old brother when the incident occurred around 5 PM Monday afternoon in a farm field about five miles southwest of Austin. The crash report indicates the young girl was thrown off the ATV, which rolled when her brother made a sharp turn in an effort to avoid striking a fence.
She was initially transported to the Mayo Clinic Health System Hospital in Austin but was later airlifted to St. Mary's hospital for treatment. Information about her medical condition is not available.
