13-Year-Old Girl Seriously Hurt In Traffic Wreck In Austin
Austin, MN (KROC AM News) - A three-vehicle accident in Austin Thursday left a 13-year-old girl from Texas with life-threatening injuries.

The State Patrol says a car “was attempting to merge into the right lane from the acceleration/deceleration lane” next to the pickup truck. The report says the driver of the pickup “braked to avoid a collision” and the semi-truck then ran into the rear of the pickup.
An 11-year-old boy from Texas who was also in the pickup suffered non-life threatening injuries. The pickup was driven by 50-year-old Ramon Moya of Edinburg, Texas.
The car was driven by 46-year-old Genet Teketel of Austin. A 5-year-old Rochester boy and an infant from Austin were in her car.
The semi-truck was driven by 60-year-old Danny Hoffman of Worland, Wyoming.
