ARCADIA, Wis. -- Two young people are recovering at a La Crosse hospital after being thrown from a vehicle in a crash in Trempealeau County.
Sheriff's officials say a minivan driven by 52-year-old Maria Salinas of Whitehall and an SUV driven by 26-year-old Arturo Ramos-Roque of Independence collided on a snow covered and slippery section of Highway 93 north of Arcadia.
Two children were thrown from Salinas' van in the crash. One of them, a 13-year-old boy from Whitehall, is in critical condition at Gundersen Lutheran in La Crosse, and another, a three-year-old, is in good condition at Gundersen Lutheran.
Investigators say the teen was not wearing a seatbelt, and the three-year-old was not in a car seat.
Salinas, two others in her van and Ramos-Roque were taken to Tri-County Memorial Hospital in Whitehall for treatment of their injuries.
Sheriff Richard Anderson tells News 8 Ramos-Roque was cited for not having a driver's license. Anderson says other citations and charges may come later as the investigation continues.
