A 16-year-old boy was transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Rochester Wednesday afternoon following a crash on Highway 60 between Madelia and Lewisville.

The patrol did not provide a condition for the boy or any other information about his identity.  A passenger in the car, Rolando Velasquez Perez, 17, of Windom, was hospitalized in St. James with non-life threatening injuries.  Isidro Velasquez Gomez, 57, of Windom, was also in the vehicle.  Gomez was not injured.

The semi driver, a 30-year-old Ohio man, wasn’t hurt.
