MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A 17-year-old Wisconsin girl is dead after a cement truck hit her car from behind Friday morning.

The Wisconsin State Patrol says Marissa Greenbaum of Amery was heading north on Highway 46 in her 2002 Jeep Wrangler when a cement truck hit her from behind. It happened at around 9:18 a.m. Friday near 120th Avenue in Amery.

Authorities say she was seriously injured in the crash and airlifted to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, where she died of her injuries later that evening. The 35-year-old man driving the cement truck was not injured.

The State Patrol says both drivers were wearing their seatbelts and alcohol was not a factor in the crash. The crash is still under investigation.
