Five children were transported to the hospital after a crash Thursday morning in Stearns County.

The Stearns County Sheriff's Office said it was called about a crash on County Road 20 at Breezewood Road in Paynesville Township at about 10:39 a.m. 


The department said a vehicle driven by Sarah Hight, 32, of Lake Lillian, was northbound on County Road 20 while a vehicle driven by Kathryn Huselid, 78, was headed southbound.

According to the sheriff's office, Huselid attempted to turn left onto Breezewood Road, but turned in front of Hight, and the two vehicles collided.

Hight's five children who were in the car with her, ranging in age from 6 months to 6 years old, were taken to the hospital for examination. One of the children suffered a minor facial laceration, the sheriff's office said.

No other details were immediately available.
