Children Injured In Burnett County Crash
The Associated Press is reporting the names of a woman and three children hurt in a crash in Burnett County on Friday evening.
The Wisconsin State Patrol told the AP that the crash happened around 6 p.m. Friday on State Hwy 70 near Triangle Lane. Apparently that’s when 38-year-old Jennifer Marie Smith of Naples, Florida lost control, slid into a ditch, and hit a tree.
Three-year old Malainey Smith was taken along with Smith to a hospital in Spooner with non-life threatening injuries. Milo and Mason Smith, two one-month old infants, were flown to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with life threatening injuries. Troopers said all three children were in safety seats in the rear of the car.
Alcohol is said to be a factor in the crash. Charges for Jennifer Smith are still pending and the crash remains under investigation.
