Thirty-two-year-old Kari Milberg, who is Lydia’s mother, was in critical condition at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, Minn. Her 3-year-old son suffered minor injuries.
The crash happened Thursday on Wisconsin Highway 35 near Prescott. Sheriff Nancy Hove said Friday that the SUV spun into the path of a truck, and investigators were trying to determine whether roadway conditions were a factor.
