BELLE PLAINE, Minn. - An 8-year-old girl was killed in a crash on Highway 169 on Sunday afternoon.

The Minnesota State Patrol says the driver of a Honda Civic was slowing down when it was struck from behind by a truck carrying a horse trailer.

The driver of the truck lost control and rolled into the ditch, which caused the trailer to roll on top of the truck.

The driver of the truck, 62-year-old Walter Grewe of Brooklyn Park, and one of his passengers suffered non-life threatening injuries. A second passenger in the vehicle, Laura Maloney, 8, was killed in the crash.

The condition of the driver of the car has not been released.

The investigation into the crash remains open.
