A 13-year-old St. Cloud girl is dead after a crash Monday evening in Watab Township.
The Minnesota State Patrol says a Chevy Suburban driven by 59-year-old Philip Boyle of St. Cloud was driving southbound on Highway 10 when it left the road, went airborne, and hit a tree on the passenger side.

The impact killed 13-year-old Ellie Sovada, who was sitting in the back seat.

The driver and another passenger – identified in the report as 12-year-old Sofia Boyle – both sustained serious but non-life threatening injuries.

The Star Tribune reports Sovada was coming back from a school track meet with her teammate and her teammate’s father.
