Four people were injured and multiple vehicles were damaged after a crash near Country Inn in Barron County, Wisconsin.

The Barron County Sheriff's Department said it was notified of a multiple-vehicle crash at the intersection of Highway SS and Highway B, north of Rice Lake, at about 6:07 p.m. on Saturday.

Initial investigation shows a Chevrolet Suburban was traveling east on Highway B and failed to stop at a stop sign, striking a Chevrolet Equinox headed south on Highway SS.

The collision then sent the vehicles into the parking lot of Country Inn, hitting five more parked vehicles and the building, the sheriff's department said.

The driver of the Suburban, identified as Brent Burns, of Rice Lake, was taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Equinox, identified as Dillen Metheny, was also taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries. A passenger in the Equinox, identified as Justin Metheny, was extracted from the vehicle and flown to St. Mary's Hospital in Duluth with serious injuries, according to the department.

One of the parked vehicles in the lot was occupied by four people at the time, and all were checked at the scene but declined medical attention.

The department said one person in the building suffered a minor injury after being hit by debris when a vehicle hit the building.

Five vehicles in all were towed from the scene.
