Posted:

PRESCOTT, Wis. (AP) -- Two children have died and three other people have been injured in a collision between a truck and an SUV in Pierce County.

Sheriff's officials say a 12-year-old girl in the vehicle died at the scene of the crash Thursday afternoon in Prescott. Another passenger, a 5-year-old girl, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The driver of the vehicle, a 32-year-old Centuria woman, and two other passengers, ages 5 and 3, were taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minn., for treatment of injuries.

Authorities say three people in the box truck were not injured. The crash happened about 3:40 p.m. on Highway 35.

Sheriff Nancy Hove said Friday road conditions were not a factor in the crash. Hove says the driver is the mother of two of the children. The other two are relatives.
