MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities say a 6-year-old boy is dead after a crash in far southern Minnesota Sunday morning, and alcohol was detected on the driver at the scene.

The Minnesota State Patrol responded to a one-vehicle crash at about 8:06 a.m. Sunday on Highway 4 in Martin County. Authorities say a 1994 Jeep four-door wagon ran off the road and rolled. A 6-year-old boy was pronounced dead at the scene. A 4-year-old was also seriously hurt, as was the driver of the vehicle, a 26-year-old woman.
