3 siblings hurt, 1 critically, in Minnesota playground crash
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A relative says one of three young siblings who were struck by an SUV that crashed into a Minneapolis playground during a police chase is in critical condition.
Devin Brinkley says 2-year-old Kayden Peltier was in critical condition heading into surgery at a Robbinsdale hospital Monday night. She says her 4-year-old niece, Lillianna Peltier, was stable with bleeding on the brain and that 3-year-old Konnor Peltier was traumatized but had minor injuries.
A hospital spokeswoman didn’t immediately return a call Tuesday seeking an update on their conditions.
The State Patrol says the SUV smashed into the playground near Jenny Lind Elementary School on Monday morning, coming to a halt entangled in a swing set. Troopers had tried to stop the driver for speeding on Interstate 94. The 27-year-old driver is in custody.
This story has been corrected to reflect that Devin Brinkley is a woman, not a man.
