posted in: News | 0

The second of three young brothers involved in a west-central Minnesota utility terrain vehicle crash earlier this month has died.

The Minnesota State Patrol offered the update about Harrison Dahl, 11, of New London, on Wednesday morning.

The boys’ mother, Lara Dahl, also wrote in a CaringBridge post that Drew Dahl, 10, was discharged earlier this week from Minneapolis’ Children’s Hospital.

“He needs to take it easy for the next month,” Lara Dahl wrote, “so after his FaceTime with his buddy they made a plan that he can be the ref of the football game.”

The crash occurred Jan. 7 when the brothers’ UTV collided with a pickup truck in rural Kandiyohi County.

William Dahl, 15, died at the Minneapolis hospital on Jan. 10. He was driving the Polaris Ranger with his younger brothers as passengers.

Lara Dahl wrote that she and her husband, Mike, were at a loss for words over all the support the family has been receiving from their community.

“We are just blown away by the love that our boys and family are receiving. We cannot thank everyone enough.”

GoFundMe account has raised more than $167,000 for the family.

The driver of the pickup truck, Matthew Leroy Anderson, 40, of Sunburg, was not injured in the crash. He was wearing a seat belt, as were the two younger boys in the UTV.
