A Le Center man and a Mongomery woman were involved in a crash near Lonsdale that left two children hospitalized and others injured.
The crash happened Wednesday just after 4 p.m. on Highway 19 near Lonsdale when an SUV and a pickup truck collided on the highway at 70th St West.
The state patrol says the Jose Leonardo Herrera-Lara, 19, of Le Center, was driving the Ford pickup, which was eastbound on Highway 19 at the time of the crash. A crash report lists Kylie Elizabeth Maxa, 18, of Montgomery, as the passenger in the pickup.
The report shows that both Herrera-lara and Maxa suffered non-life threatening injuries. But a Go Fund Me page started by friends says Maxa was airlifted to Hennepin County Medical Center.

Alcohol was present in Herrera-Iara’s system, according to the crash report. Everyone involved was wearing a seat belt.
