A 16-year-old has died after a crash last week in Meeker County.

The Meeker County Sheriff's Office said the crash happened at about 5:42 p.m. Friday near the intersection of State Highway 24 and 675th Avenue in Forest City Township.


Deputies learned a vehicle driven by Dylan Falling, of Litchfield, collided with a vehicle driven by 34-year-old Dennis Plamann, of Dassel.

The sheriff's office said Falling was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extricated by rescue personnel. Falling was then airlifted to a hospital with critical injuries.

On Thursday, the sheriff's office said Falling died from his injuries. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner confirmed Friday that Falling died from multiple blunt force injuries in the crash.

Plamann was also airlifted to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash is still under investigation but alcohol is not believed to be a factor.
